Medicaid expansion - poor people medical insurance.
#11
Yes--I have fallen into the insurance "gap" and there is no possibility for insurance for people in Kansas who do. I had been on obamacare until I lost my job in January and immediately lost coverage with no other options. If a person can only work part-time in Kansas, you have no options. I hope to be able to find a place where I can get coverage.

For example, a friend who lives in plumas county of california got a blue shield silver ppo plan for $21 a month after subsidy. That plan has $5 office visit copay, $3 prescription copay, and a $75 annual deductible.


And if they had a disability (mental, hidden physical, not the usual) they might not earn this much. Still very good to know.

I can never find the low cost office visit, prescription co-pay and annual deductibles. Some of the plans actually have continuing co-pays after the deductibles is met. Is your friend on medicare with Blue Shield as the provider? California exchange and off exchange are almost identical, note they have a $7000.00 annual out of pocket stop loss. You're monthly premium will vary depending on income but the plan coverage will not.

Medi-CAL via Obamacare in California is the largest and most expensive Medicaid system in the country....

Massachusetts has excellent healthcare for low income. One of the few positives I can say about the place! That and the Western part of the state has some really nice scenery and still affordable.
I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.

Those who make less than 16-17K/year would not be eligible for obamacare plans, but may be able to get medicaid/medi-cal. 

My friend has the blue shield silver ppo plan purchased through the covereca.com california obamacare exchange.

You're link is showing the same coverage break down as my links. $2500 individual deductible with $7000 annual out of pocket expense. I think the only way to avoid the deductible and OOPE is to qualify for medicaid which is Medi-Cal in California... I was one of 1.7 million Californian's who had there individual health plans cancelled when obamacare was enacted. I've been without health insurance since 2010... Hoping I make it to Medicare!

The deductible for the silver plans changes depending on how much of the deductible/copay subsidy you qualify for.  I don't know what the maximum income is to qualify for that, but someone making less than 24K/year qualifies for some deductible/copay reduction while someone making 17K/year would get the maximum amount as my friend does.

I had a blue cross ppo until 2015 when I switched to the obamacare plans. I started with a blue cross ppo bronze obamacare plan, but switched to a blue shield ppo plan in 2017 because blue cross (anthem) shrank the network for their obamacare ppo plans so that it no longer included the major hospital in my area. Before 2016, the blue cross ppo plans and blue cross ppo obamacare plans had the same network, but that changed in 2016. Blue shield ppo plans still have the same network.
