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

I am a spouse covered on my spouses employment medical
I am a spouse covered on my spouses employment medical insurance in Chicago, my issue is that the requirements of this insurance have become more and more intrusive into what I consider to be doctor patient privacy issues. They are requiring all kinds of additional activities with deadlines and fees attached if you don't comply. Isn't this a violation of my personal rights and doctor patient privacy, where I have no alternatives but compliance without incurring fees in addition to the health insurance costs and copays.
Im having some issues at work. I am a machinist that works
Hello, Im having some issues at work. I am a machinist that works on Lathes and Mills at night. I come in at 3pm and everyone else leaves at 5pm. Most of the time, about 80% I am left alone, till 1am in the morning I fear that if an accident happens I won't have help or worse wont be able to call 911. On top of it i get short changed almost every paycheck and have to wait for the correction till the following pay period. Is all this legal in the state of Illinois?
My husband was hospitalized after visiting the emergency
My husband was hospitalized after visiting the emergency room. We thoughthe was on medicaid but when we checked prior to the visit was told he was dropped because he is 66 years old.We never were notified. A medicaid representative filed for him(in the hospital) but my w-2's were used plus our joint bank account. Consequently I signed a form saying I would not be responsible for his medical bills. Can I take what would be my portion of the account and put it in my separate account. It is approximately $19, 000. I don't earn a huge amount- this year it is $16,000. so far and he has no earnings this year. Will Medicaid penalize us for this? I have already given them the account statement. I fear this will make him ineligible for retroactive coverage and he does not have medicare. Thank you for any advice.

Does this apply to dental as well?

My neighbor enrolled in the obamacare last year. She just
my neighbor enrolled in the obamacare last year. She just got a card from medicaid and she need to choose an HMO by next month. Here is the issue. She says she did not sign up for medicaid and wants to stay with the obamacare she got on the federal website.I called the info number for medicaid and they said that she can drop medicaid. I dont understand how she should drop out of a program she did not sign up for. They said this was presented to them in april. perhaps the state looked at her low income, I donot know. She does not want medicaid and wants to keep using the medical coverage she got on the exchange and pay the premium. The question is...if she drops the medicaid , will she be prevented to enroll sometime in the future if she needs it if her incomeget lower or other reason? I do not want to advise her to drop medicaid and then find out she can not enroll or be eligible sometime in the future.

I looked on the SBA website, the IRS website, and the Covered California website. They all tell me what I "can" do, but none of them tell me what I "must" do. I own a small business which currently has less than 10 employees. Do I have to provide healthand/or dental coverage to them?
