I'm Pregnant and Most Likely Have To Apply For Obamacare.Submitted by jja on Mon, 11/04/2013 - 21:04
I thought I would come to the DP for any helpful advice or suggestions. I really do NOT want to apply for Obamacare but I am several months pregnant and have not been to the doctor yet; I don't know what other options I have. I had health insurance up until May, but being young, I've never needed it much. My husband's job only allows health insurance for him, not his family.
I know my state offered emergency medical for pregnant women, and when I tried to get that, I was told they no longer offer that now because of Obamacare.
In addition, Obamacare is too expensive anyways. I haven't checked the cost using the Obamacare site, (I don't want to be in their system) but someone I'm close to, who works for a large insurance company, was able to figure the cost for me alone, which is frankly something we really can't afford. The cost didn't even include the co-pays, and of course it would be something I would then have to pay for the rest of my life when I really am only seeking help with my pregnancy.
