I recently got divorced. I was on my wife's health insurance plan. I work as a contract employee so I get no benefits. I have been trying to find affordable health insurance for 2 months now. Currently I am paying $575 a month for COBRA. I make $32K so I am about to the bottom of my savings account. Mention the word Coumadin and the insurance salesmen run like hell. I seriously would be much better off to quit my job and go on SSI. But for some reason I feel morally obligated to tow the line.
