Holy Crap! I can't afford COBRA - any ideas what to do?
Now that I was fired for taking too long at lunch to give my parents their meds, my COBRA, the continuing medical coverage option, is $450 a month. That's not gonna happen. Can I shop around for another plan? Has anybody else been through this and have any ideas.

And you can eliminate the "get another job loser" posts, I'm looking. Unemployment is over 10% in my area. And yes, I'd come home to give them their meds all over again. My boss was a heartless bastard.

Is medical insurance a must? I work as a heavy duty truck mechanic which is a dangerous occupation, but never needed medical insurance even with small injuries. I do have it just in case of a major incident, but until you get shit figured out, drop it unless you are on meds or something.

If you're in commiefornia you can go and buy all the shit you need in Mexico. Walk into a drug store and take it all right off the shelf. No prescriptions, no fuck all, cash and carry from what I hear. I also hear it's much cheaper.

no shopping around allowed. COBRA only covers the previous policy you had in effect. that actually sounds "cheap" as my COBRA experience in the late 90s was roughly a grand a month (single, no dependants) to continue the useless coverage my employer provided.

Just walk into any medical facility and say you are undocumented immigrant. You will then get top of the line treatment.

Go to an academic center (usually a university hospital) and use the ER. You will get free excellent care with all tests and more than you require. No insurance company to deny anything...That's where residents are in training!!

everytime I was offered COBRA it was at least $800 month.Never took it,wentwithout.
at least now you can go to urgent care if you have to see a doc for about $60 those didn't used to be available. Don't get hurt or sick.

If you live in CA you (...anyone) can join the California Farm Bureau, [link to www.cfbf.com] and then sign up for health services (and other services):

If you don't live in CA the state you do live in may have a similar Farm Bureau organization.
