Yes. I don’t qualify for Medicaid or anything like that either. I’ll throw myself on the mercy of Gilead’s program so I can get HIV meds, though I could do without them if I need to.

Dang. It's never a good time to be without health care insurance, but now is definitely not a good time. I hope you stay well till you can pick it up again.

We’re “managing our income” for the next three years (til Medicare kicks in) for just this reason.

Our Obamacare premiums didn’t substantially change this year. Yay! But health care is still an f-ed up system in this country.

One of his pre-election promises 4+ years ago was to introduce his all new health care plan that would be better for everyone. He still has 21 days, so hold on, it's coming.

The plans often change every year. Did you go to healthcare.gov to re-up? Did your income increase significantly?

So sorry to hear that. There must be a better way. Why can't we copy the System they have in Switzerland, Germany, France of Japan? They spend less than us in Switzerland and they live longer. We are doing everything wrong. WTF is wrong with this country???

The stimulus would cover a month with enough for two Happy Meals left over! Send Mitch a thank-you note.

My wife's was going to go way up. Normally she's rarely sick and I hope it stays that way next year because she chose a high out of pocket max but zero deductible plan for $0.00/month. Her plan last year was like $125/month and was going to $200. I think her PC visits will be $50, specialist $100 and ER $500. Six more years before she can get on Medicare. My Medicare supplement is going to be like $170/month but I'm in and out of Drs. offices like a revolving door.

Was Sprep, Flu and Covid tested just today. Have been pretty ill for about 5 days and I had to have all these tests according to my PC physician.

Just don't forget what Turtle Face Mitch said, “The Senate is not going to be bullied into rushing out more borrowed money into the hands of Democrats’ rich friends who don’t need the help,” Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said on the Senate floor.

You're damn tootin'. Not when the money could go to Republican rich friends who need the help even less.

What state are you in? and what sort of options are available in your area/county/parish?

I've noticed big medical gobbling up smaller competitors in many markets, really screwing them up, while in other markets where there is competition, the choices are more reasonable. Just browsing several different state's options (because Baby Buzz had to switch plans for 1/1/21), showed all sorts of disparity in prices, and apparent choices of care relative to HMO vs PPO structures. Our country needs some serious help.
