Trying to sign up for health insurance…

My first stop was United healthcare, who I had covering me up until about 4 years ago.

Everything went fine until somehow the system hung and it couldn’t be “called up.”:(

I tried the Obamacare hotline.:(

I told them I was retired and had no income and they told me I was ineligible for Obamacare and that Medicaid would be what coverage was mine.

I said “That all goes through the county in our state. Isn’t that county government who more or less ‘runs’ it, and no the federal government?” She couldn’t answer my question.

I need coverage from somewhere and I am going to keep on trying…..

And today’s try — writing this as an addendum; today is Tuesday…

Is to no avail.

United Healthcare quoted me $600. What the hell? Do they think all of us are made of money?

We’re screwed and that’s that.

And don’t get me started again about wanting to go back to work. I fucking can’t believe this happened to me.

  1. Sign up for Medicaid. Also, SSDI. WIth all your attempts to find work, and still you remain unemployed, you ‘really’ do meet the ‘criteria’ as ‘disabled’. Technology is ‘disabling’ a lot of people all around the world. It has always been that way. It was very ‘insidious’ in the past, but now it is ‘overt’. It is also ‘accelerating’. Soon many high profile jobs will be done by machines. One of the ‘top hedge funds advisors’ is actually a computer program. And, “IBM’s” “Watson” is poised to ‘take over the world’. We ‘live in interesting times’! But, for your own sake you need to ‘come to terms’ with the fact that you are in your ‘post-employment’ years. It is very hard to deal with the fact that ‘society’ no longer has a place for you, but that fact is what many others are facing today. We have ‘aged out’ of the workforce, and there is no ‘going back’ to our ‘younger selfs’.

    1. I was told that I was ineligible for SSDI. My levels are controlled.

      As for Medicaid, forget it. You vanish into the system and it pays for nothing, not even your eyeglasses.

      There isn’t anything I can do.

      1. Showing up unbidden in the mail: WellCare.

        Thanks a lot and yeah, so sorry I called.

        It was equally as expensive when I called United Health. What happened here? I say our fingers are being taken. $723 and $750 a month, for what?
