Im still confused with all this healthcare business and what who gets when and how... Im sure a lot of people here are also confused and concerned as to what to expect. Many of us are in different situations so it might effect different people differently.
Here is my situation, my healthcare coverage is depended on the previous months hours works. In order for me to receive benefits next month i need to work 10 days 8 hours a day in this month... so basically 80 hours this month, would give me full benefits next months.
That being said, how would this obama care effect me for the months that i do have coverage and for the months that when i dont have coverage? I dont have healthcare every month because of lack of work and i dont get 80 hours every month
would i get a fine during the month of not having healthcare and then if next month once i get healthcare would i just ignore that fine and say... oh well, i do have healthcare!! i try to get enought hours to have benefits, but its been really hard lately.
I do not believe you, to put it simply. It is not feasible to insure someone for one month and not the next month and then again the next month. So if you qualify for insurance one month and get cancer and can't work the next month , then you no longer have insurance? You start feeling better and work 80 hours and all of a sudden the insurance company will start covering your cancer treatment again? I just don't buy it. I know of no insurance company that would wrok on that basis.
I could see you staying insured and the company paying when you worke enough and you paying when you don't work enough but not the scenario that you posted.
