ethansmom Posted November 14, 2003 Report Share Posted November 14, 2003 I am so discouraged. I have always been covered under my parents health insurance plan since I am a student, but I am turning 22 next week and they are dropping me. I have looked into a dependent continuation plan, but that is going to cost $379 per month to keep my same coverage- OUCH My boyfriend and I already pay that much to have him and the baby covered under his insurance. I also looked into getting on his insurance, but they don't allow an unmarried domestic partner to be covered, and Medicaid won't cover me because I am over 19 and not pregnant or on disability. I don't plan on applying for disability because I am going back to work in a month, but it's only part time so my employer cannot offer benefits.I have looked at all the options, and because I have a pre-existing condition, I can't get a policy for under $700 per month unless I stay with my current insurance company and pay the $379, which is still unaffordable for us. Has anyone been through this, or can offer me some type of advice? I am panicking because as of December 22, I will no longer have health insurance- and the Pro-Amatine alone is going to cost me a fortune, not to mention the other meds and frequent doctor visits.
