New widow needs health insurance
MY PROBLEM: My husband passed away, suddenly, this past April, leaving me and my stepson without health insurance after June of this year. We can COBRA, but it is terribly expensive.
QUESTION: How can I afford health insurance for me and my 17-yr. old stepson? The lowest quotes I have received have been $500-600 PER MONTH with a $1,000 deductible and 20% coinsurance. My GOD - there's NO WAY I have that kind of money! I am 57.
Any direction/suggestions would be so much appreciated, as we are now on a single/limited income. Thank you, in advance, for any help you can offer.
