My question is about the affordable care act- I am covered

My question is about the affordable care act- I am covered by MEDICARE and a supplemental policy with United Health through AARP. I am currently working for a healthcare staffing agency that states that I MUST take their insurance, even though I am already covered by MEDICARE and even though I have repeatedly stated that I do NOT want to be covered by their insurance (Cigna). The agency provides this coverage to all employees and pays the premiums. I am told that the agency's "contract with the federal government" (because of the affordable care act) will only allow the coverage to be waived under three conditions: 1- if I am covered by CHAMPUS, 2- if I have health insurance provided by another employer, or 3- if I am covered on a spouse's health insurance policy. Is this true ? Is it legal ? Can I be forced to accept coverage I do not want or need ? Medicare is disputing responsibility saying they are no longer my primary provider of insurance. I am a widow and not covered by any other insurance save Medicare and the supplemental policy through AARP. Can you please tell me if what this staffing agency is telling me is true and am I forced to accept this insurance which is causing me nothing but trouble ?

I have started infertility treatment -- but starting the new

I have started infertility treatment -- but starting the new year I am joining a new plan that actually covers the infertility treatment. Considering that I have infertility treatment in progress -- would the new insurance plan cover me for the subsequent treatment even though I have not started this treatment under the new insurance. Would this be regulated under Obama care? Please do not ask me to read the plan material -- as I do not have one -- as I have not started the new job -- and most likely it would not be in the SPD anyway. I understand that for example for dental plans you are typically NOT covered under new plan for "work in progress". Please provide links or speak from your personal experience when you dealt with this issue.

My neice was working as an exec Warner - she fell ill during

hello -My neice was working as an exec for Time Warner - she fell ill during this time and her Blue Cross Blue Shield refused to have her tested for Lymes Disease - a $2K test. AFter much time, I gladly paid for the test and it came back positive in the extreme. During here coverage under BCBS-they said they do not cover Lymes Disease and she continued to go toDrs. who proscribed hundreds of antibiotics. Her alimentary system is now paralyzed- Time Warner let her work from home for a while and have now terminated her position. They told her she only had 3 months of COBRA - I have been paying for her holistic medical bills and she is quite a bit better, however, after her termination in Dec 2015 and the mere 3 months of Cobra - I can no longer afford the previous $3K a month and now much more for her holistic doctors, which are the only doctors who have been able to keep her alive. She weighs 74 lbs. and can barely walk. She also has needed psychological counseling since she went from an honour college grad to a great job to an invalid within 3 years. Our question is what do we do now? Disability says it will take a year to get her on Medicare -that Medicaid will only cover emergencies. I thought Cobra was for a much longer period - and nowwe need to know about Obamacare - how to get her on it, what will we have to pay since she is unemployable and will they allow payment forthe holistic treatment that is the only thing that is keeping her alive.This is a family nightmare and we are having trouble getting clear answers from anyone,. Especially what doctors who take Medicare willtreat her when we get that or Obamacare when we get that. In the meantime, we are just hanging on and praying.thanks,kdw
