Health Insurance Matter
I'll try to briefly explain my dilemma.
I live in NYC. I buy my health insurance from a group rate plan from an agency I work for. I'm an independent contractor. They just called me last week (28th June) and said that the health insurance company is no longer qualifying contractors for their plan by the end of that month (June), leaving me without any health insurance as of 1st July. That just gave me one weekend of notice.
I've looked into purchasing some personal health insurance, however, for most you can't qualify until the following month. This leaves me without health insurance for a month......a huge worry for me. I'm healthy and in my early 30's if this matters any.
My questions are:
1) Shouldn't a health insurance company give more notice before such cancellations? Do I have any such rights?
2) Anybody know of any temporary insurance plans for just a month or a few weeks? Not as a traveller though.
