My husband passed away last May of 2014. We have been covered by my husband’s insurance since his death but that will end June 1, 2015. I need help or direction as to what to do for insurance coverage for my family. The demographics of my family are: me, spouse 54, daughter married 24 full time student, daughter 21 full time student, son 16 with severe Crohn’s disease. Recently had a colectomy. Has a stoma needs ostomy supplies regularly.
Your insurance choices depend upon income. Given your situation you should find an affordable plan at HealthCare.Gov. When you choose a plan, aim for a silver plan with good cost sharing and a low out-of-pocket maximum. You can get cost assistance for anyone you claim on your tax returns.
Sorry to hear about your loss, we sincerely hope that cost assistance and the new benefits can help ease the transition.
