I have had the worst experience trying to get health insurance coverage as a single woman professional. I don’t know how this new health insurance system helps people get coverage because so far it has set me up to fail in getting the coverage I need for my health.
I just started a new job as an independent contractor and am trying to set up health insurance for my self. I was told that I would not be able to sign up for coverage until next November 9 months from now as I had missed the deadline. Now I am afraid and thinking I will have a gigantic tax bill at the end of 2015 because I could not get the health insurance that is required and that I need. I see the government of setting this up so that they get huge tax payouts and the people do not get the care they need. How does this benefit me?!!!
