Health insurance. I have changed jobs. My current insurance

Health insurance. I have changed jobs. My current insurance will end on September 30th. My new job does not offer insurance. I know I can get on COBRA for 18 months, but it is incredibly expensive (Aetna). My main concern in prescription insurance. I am on 7 different prescriptions. My Qutieapine alone is $1000 a month. Is there something that is just prescription insurance that will make my prescriptions affordable? Or is there a full health insurance company that I can afford ? In my new job, I make $9.00 an hour.

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court.

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court. I feel that my mother, who was the injured person..delay of stroke 5 hours, in a stroke certified hospital was wronged. At the end, the ER Doctor, admitted that because my mother had group health insurance, he could not treat her stroke and it is the policy between Overlake Hospital and Group Health that the group health patients must be seen by Group Health Doctors. So, my mother had to wait 40 minutes before the group health neurologist showed up. It was delay, and she missed her window to be treated with IV tpa which is the only FDA approved treatment for a stroke (3-4 hour window).JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Washington State. Can we appeal our case?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Could my mom's case be civil right because she was descriminated with her insurance?

My employer sent an email asking employees to voluntarily

My employer sent an email asking employees to voluntarily supply "provide preferred physician; medical group; hospital information" so that an outside insurance broker can look into this information and see if they can find us better insurance coverage. We are asked to provide this information on an online survey, and it also asks for our name, too. They are claiming that providing this info will help the insurance agent find coverage that applies to most of our employees.My employer claims that this information will ONLY be available to the insurance broker, and that the company will not have access to anything.Isn't this illegal or somewhat questionable under HIPAA? Can they ask (even if voluntary) for my full name and related doctor/hospital information?

I live in Texas.I've been divorced for 12 plus years.My

Hi.I live in Texas.I've been divorced for 12 plus years.My exhusband and his wife will not let me use my childrens dental insurance card,even though Cigna sent it to our address.The wife texted me she will press charges if i attempt to use the insurance when i take my children to the dentist. The wife wants me to pay cash so they then turn it into their insurance company and file a claim as though they paid cash.?Yet it takes them over a year to reimburse me (our decree states to repay within 30 days but they do not do this).Hope this makes sense. Not sure if it's worth trying to use the insurance without their permission? What is your advice? I can't afford to go back to my attorney to get any decree rectified and my x knows this.He is in an entirely different earning bracket and he can afford to allow me to use their insurance for their visits but as he told me that if I was starving and they were the last people on earth ,he and his wife wouldn't even Sh__ in my own mouth.Those are his exact words.Just so you know what kind of filthy mean spirited person i have to deal with.Our decree states he must carry health insurance and dental we each pay 50/50 .He refused to let decree state he must carry dental insurance.He has never followed the decree (he acts as though he is above it),He has never been an actual father physically or emotionally for our children.Its his loss,they are wonderful human beings and as my son goes off to college in two weeks I just want to know if i can get their dental work completed before he leaves under his insurance.The only reason i learned they has dental insurance is that Cigna sent the card to my address.Cigna suggested i talk to an attorney.Then Cigna mentioned to make sure i went to a provider on their accepted list.Now i sort of felt the rep was saying just go to one of oy=ur dentists and all will be fine ,but i know how insane and dramatic his wife is and she has nothing better to do in her day than to make our lives miserable,nevermind that her 3 children from a different man all got braces which my childrens father paid for! Its not right.What should i do? I need him to agree we can use the insurance.I would like to keep it nice because we need him to agree to pay the orthodontist his 50 pervent directly as i do not want to be financially out both 50 percent portions of my son and daughters braces.Please help.Thank you kindlly.Toni Harless
