    No insurance
    crystalscats posted:
    I have mentioned I have no insurance since I was laid off due to downsizing at my company. I could not afford the Cobra benefits or private insurance. Private will not cover my pre-existing problems. During my research though I found a site that is government funded pre-existing insurance. The only requirements are;
    You have had no previous insurance for 6 months and have a pre-existing health problem.

    You just look up your state and it will tell you how much the premium will be, as same for all in that state. I am waiting until our move to WV is complete to sign up. Of course as always NJ is more and the state runs it rather than federal in NJ.

    I hope this can help someone!
