Hi everyone. Im in the home strech! Due on Halloween!! Yikes, it's getting close! My husband was in the union so it has always been free. Unfortunatly they don't have any work right now so we're on an extension program called cobra for $700 a month. After three months it goes up to $1100 a month!!! It's an expense we really didn't expect to have. After the baby is born we need something more affordable. Does anyone have any information on either medical or medicade. Im not sure what the difference is or what the qualifying factors are. Anyone?

Just go to your local Department of Human Services and ask about medicaid applications. They'll want you to bring certain information papers with you so make sure you ask what is needed. Good luck, I know it must be tough dealing with that kind of crisis this late in the game with baby so close! Hope everything works out with you!

so sorry to hear of your siatuion. COBRA is such a rip off- it is so so expensive!! cobra is basically what they offer to you, union or not once you leave a company or something- that way you have an option to continue your insurance, but the cost is LOT higher. but for some it is the only choice. good luck!!

just be careful not to mention your on cobra, the HIPP program sent me a letter saying they wont give me insurance if i have access to cobra or other insurance. I dont, but becareful.
