A Moment To Rant

A Moment To Rant.

If you don't want to read it's fine. I just need to get it out.

So I found out I have GD and just started keeping track. I'm doing the diet plan to the frikin T and my levels are still way too high. I got a call from the Liberty company saying that my insurance was inactive. Well yeah, about that. Husband lost his job, we had to fill out and send paperwork to say we're continuing insurance but my frikin husband hasn't sent the insurance company a check (I thought he had because he said he was taking care of it)! He also hasn't been applying for jobs and I don't have a job either. I HATE asking family for money. And although my parents offered to pay for a month of insurance ($1,100 without a job! Only $200 when he was employed) I really wish he would apply for jobs. We're not going to be able to pay another month of insurance and I don't want my parents paying again. And the due date is August.

I'm getting so stressed out and I feel like i'm losing it. :( I don't know what to do.

Vent over.

  • Sorry that 's  tough hugs feel free to vent away
  • Yikes, what a crappy situation. I've been without health insurance before, and it's stressful enough on your own, nevermind while pregnant. What state do you live in? It's possible that you might qualify for a state funded health insurance, especially since you're pregnant. Some states do have decent health insurance coverage.

  • I'm assuming my husband isn't applying for jobs because he feels he has time. But who knows. He is working a little for my dad but it will only be probably through the end of this month and it's only a third of what he got paid at his other job. We also pulled our 401k to cover the regular bills through august (but it's not enough to also cover the insurance and the doctor bills). He said he applied for 2 jobs (he's been out of work for a month now). He said he sent his resume to the unemployment place too because they' help send it out. But according to him last night he has to finish it still. Ugh. So I don't know what's going on. I want to smack him up side the head.

  • Just to take a mental load off... can you check and see if your hospital has financial assistance?  I know that mine has some programs for women and families that make under X amount a year, and it's a small community hospital.  I'd assume that even bigger hospitals may have programs too.
  • Hugs! What a horrible situation to be in. I'd want to smack DH too. I was worried we'd be in the same situation since my DH's job was iffy last month. We thought his company might go under if one big contract did not renew. We were holding our breath all of May. Thankfully contract is renewed for a year and he's got a job for at least another year. I applied for state insurance just in case and still have not heard a word back. I'm also due in Aug. Since DH's job is saved I'm not stressing over app so much, but we're still going thru with state app. I'm too scared to just let it go.
  • That's sucks, vent away.

    Just saying though that it sounds like your husband needs to nut up and stop effing around. You should not have to borrow money from your folks because he's being a lazy, immature, irresponsible tool.

    This. Most hospitals will work something out with you for payment if you don't have insurance.  Also, you should see if you if you qualify for state funded insurance. I know it can be a blow to the ego but you are getting down to the wire and if your husband doesn't get a job anytime soon it's your best bet. Sorry you're going through this. Hope it all works out. 



    All of this. Some state Medicaid programs will even back date your assistance for as long as you have met the income guidelines. I know my state is very lax on the guidelines to qualify for assistance if you are pregnant. I know it is hard to swallow your pride and apply, but these programs are there for people like you who actually NEED the help. No shame in doing what you need to do for your family.

    And definitely talk to your hospital and OB. I'm sure even if they don't offer assistance themselves they can point you in the right direction.

    ETA: Your husband needs a kick in the head. I would be furious.

    Agree 100%.
