In 2008 at 56 I lost my $90,000 a year job which was also my husband and my insurance carrier no problem my husband worked for Wellpoint (Blue Cross Blue Shield) so we would just pick up insurance with them. I replaced my job with one that makes $18,500 a year and is a small employer with no health insurance. In 2010 just 8 days before my husbands 60th birthday Wellpoint closed there location in our town. He had about $30,000 in his HRA which was used up with our $2,000 a month insurance in about 16 months so at 63 for my husband and 60 for me we have had no insurance for a year. . We both have health issues but can't afford to go to the Dr. are get any medican. We have been waiting for almost 2 years to be able to got to the Dr. and get the test we need, and praying for no emergency because we would lose what little we have left. The Affordable Care Act is our only hope do not let anything happen to stop it.
