Need help with Health Care
I was laid off two years ago from a job I had held for 28 years. I am now working a part-time job at 40% of my former hourly rate with no benefits, and have been told there will be no full-time positions available until at least next year. My COBRA was up 6 months ago, and since I have pre-existing conditions and am a cancer survivor I was not able to purchase individual health insurance. The only insurance I could get is the state's assigned risk plan (a.k.a. NH Health Plan), for a monthly cost of $859. This is about half of my monthly take-home pay, so it is obviously a large burden. On top of this I have a high deductible and much higher co-pays than my previous plan.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
