No Health Insurance?

Recommended Posts

Oh LeAnne, bless your heart! Well, congratulations and good luck on your upcoming marriage...regardless of the circumstances it should be a happy time for you. Don't let this drama over shadow it.


That being said........if you have the fight in you, DON'T give up yet! Appeal the decision to the next higher level. File a grievance. Tell them that you were given false information (i.e. you were told your docs were covered) when you enrolled. ....bring out the words, "Insurance Commissioner"


Too many people give up too easily because there are so many hoops to go through and there is so much paperwork to fill out--but that's how they weed out so many people that aren't willing to fight for what they deserve.


If it were me, I'd probably just get married. ;-) But it makes me angry when I hear about the way you've been treated. Good luck, sweetie. Let me know if I can help!

They denied me. I got almost 15 minutes of sleep in this morning before I had to schlep off to work. While I was getting ready, I spontaneously burst into tears about three times. Talk about being unhealthy... I think FI almost had me comitted.

The good news is that I think I'm getting married! Yay love!
Sapphire, I am so sorry that you're going through all of this... Eventhough I am covered with a decent insurance .. I had to stop seeing specialists because the $30 copay was killing my bank account. I started to get real upset because my Chiropractor (I highly DO NOT reccommend who is located in Southington) diagnosed me wrong - I had a gut feeling and felt pressured to quickly do something about it before I ran out of money. I got to an Osteopth, after more x-rays and an MRI (fingers crossed I don't get a big bill for someone's precert screw up) he said I have a healthy structure vs what the Chiro said that I have a back of a 100 yr old woman!! Mixing money with health issues is never fun and takes a psychological toll - I really understand...I also used to be a medical biller and had to fight tooth and nail with these insurance companies and employer to do write offs or accept patient hardship waivers.

Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is try and hang in there and on a brighter note: congrats on getting married soon!

Hey LeAnne,


Sorry to hear about this awful mess. What a disaster. I hope it all gets sorted out ok when you get married -- congrats on your upcoming marriage!


I used to joke with my FI about being with him for his benefits... he put me on there fairly early as his common law wife.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
