This last year my income dropped to poverty level.

I went to Obamacare That is Healthcare.gov to apply for insurance.

first you have to see what you qualify for. So I entered all the info and when it was done it said I qualified for Medicare. I followed the link to Medicare and there they insist I go through the same qualification procedures as healthcare.com and low and behold I was told I can't apply for Medicare until 2024.

What a joke and a jerk around both these govt ran sites are as one site tels me I qualify and the other says I don't, go figure.

No insurance for this old buzzard.

No, not in the States.

Overseas I have some but it is only good in that country. But we have been back for over a year.

Right.
Medicare...you have to be 65.

Medicaid is for those with lower incomes.

The site would not work months ago.

And even now it took four tries to finally keep the site from locking up and losing all my info.

I did NOT use the website, I did it all over the phone, I figured that would be the best way, and it was. I was covered January 1st.

You have to also be careful you are so poor you don't own anything and that you think you never will because they have some loopholes in the US medicare/medicaid that claws back the costs, ie takes your home and belongings which is evil beyond belief.

My sister can't get Obamacare or Medicaid. She doesn't qualify and what is funny is she doesnt' work! Her by works and she is a stay at home mom but they aren't married so it screws it all up. So stupid.

I am on my husbands insurance and he pays $500 a month! I just went to the doctor the other day and everything went up on the 1st of the year. My co pay use to be $20 and now it's $45. I got annoyed when the girl said it wasn't 'a lot. I was like when you don't work and have one income and have to go more than once week it is a lot. My god I wanted to punch her. My medication is $45 and I have blood work on Tuesday, no idea what that will cost and I'm scared to find out.

The entire healthcare system in this country is a joke. Many have insurance they can't even afford to use. I mean wtf is that?!

Ugh...I am glad I have insurance but it sucks that i can't use it at times because I don't have the co pay!
