Obamacare: Your story
No Health Insurance
Now that insurance was not available to us in the open market we decided to insure my wife and that I would wait 6 months. The plan was for me to apply to a Federally funded program PCIP (pre-existing insurance program). The program is administered at the state level but funded by the Federal Government. A pre-requisite to PCIP is to not have insurance for 6 months.
When I applied to PCIP the Federal Sequester came into play. They took my money and kept it for 4 months knowing that my application would be turned down due to the Sequestor.
Currently, I do not have insurance and need to see a doctor. I am waiting for ObmaCare so that I can get insurance. If ObmaCare doesn't happen I'm not quite sure what I will do. I feel as if my back is up against the wall. I will not be eligible for Medicare for another 3 years.
