Default Healthcare options for the unemployed/students.

my girlfriend quite her job awhile back to stay home with our daughter and go back to school full time. she has been with out any medical coverage for almost six months. she has a history of kidney stones and has been starting to feel it again.

i know cobra is/was an option but we would pay out the ass. the company i work for only has same sex domestic partner coverage, if we were married this wouldn't be an issue, but i don't want to get married for that reason.

anybody on here have this kind of coverage without paying ridiculous amounts of money. thanks.

Her school probably has a discount coverage program for its students.

If you were gay, you could probably get coverage without being married. How's that for a kicker?

Unfortunately, I don't think Kaiser Permanente is available up there. That's what my wife uses ($150/month vs $400/month through my company).

Just hope she doesn't get sick. My g/f has them, they are the worst POS company I've ever seen. They have like minimum wage doctors or something.

That's because you can't get married if you're gay killer.

You can't get married to your family dog either, should you be able to include them on your health plan?

And yes, I do support gay marriage. I don't support a loophole for them and not for my significant other, whom I am not married to.

*edit: nevermind, this is going to turn into some homophobic name calling and a flame war. I'm just making a point, nothing else.

Meh - we've heard all the stories. They serve her well so far, though.

my school required it and tacked on $500 to you tuition bill for the semester for their own coverage if you didn't provide them proof of insurance.

why should he watch his mouth? nothing he said was incorrect. The fact that stupid people put a negative connotation on an innocent word irks me. Are you too niggardly to pony up the dough for the wedding?

Besides, this is OT. You can't say you didn't expect it.

That was advise about how to get healthcare. You need to lighten up, you're the one posting your personal life on the interweb not me.

Check your coverage again.Most plans cover cohabitants who have lived together more than 6 months, share a bank account,lease, mortgage,or are parents of a child living together.You are probably already paying for the family plan to cover your child. Don't let them hand you a line, your girl friend should be covered.What insurance and what company? Or PM me if you want.Deb

No, your opinion is that he should get married... a personal decision, IMO.

Yeah - he should get married in order to allow for health care coverage. I don't think it was a moral judgement.

I could care less whether or not he gets married. I was simply offering him a way to get health care that may or may not have crossed his mind.

You also need to relax. This is OT, jokes are allowed. If he wanted a serious humorless answer I'm sure Human Resources at his work would've been happy to given him one. He on the other hand decided to post this in the off topic of a car forum. You do see a difference between human resources and an off topic car forum don't you?
