Answer

The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) bans insurers from denying coverage or charging more for coverage for preexisting conditions like epilepsy.

Depending upon your taxable household income you can get cost assistance on coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace or if your state Expanded Medicaid you can get free or low cost coverage through Medicaid. Since you have no income, you would most likely qualify for free or low cost coverage (but only if your state expanded Medicaid).

The Affordable Care Act also improved the basic benefits all plans must offer by requiring each plan to cover at least services from ten essential health categories and established limits for what can be spent each year. That means that even plans with high deductibles cover some services for free and others with cost sharing amounts after you reach your deductible.

The easiest way to understand what your options are is to visit HealthCare.Gov. No matter if you have a preexisting condition or not it won't affect your eligibility or the cost of your coverage.

To understand what incomes qualify you for what type of cost assistance see the Federal Poverty Level.

You can always follow up and appeal with Medicaid, it really matters what state you are in. In some more liberal states it is easy to get Medicaid, in other non-liberal states it can be tricker. Think that is a polite way to say it. In simple terms, follow up with them rather than waiting and resubmit and repeal if need be. No great interm solution aside local charity and private plans (including short term).
