health insurance woes

in this age of the Affordable Healthcare Act. For whatever reason, when i went through the exchange, i didn't qualify for medicaid. my premiums started at $226 per month. i can't afford that, needless to say. so it's a good thing i'm on doc's work insurance. except for one thing: UPS flipped out at the ACA and decided to cull it's insured. any spouse who can get insurance through their own employer is not eligible for UPS dependent health care at any price. i have no employer, so i wasn't worried.

now, i'm worried. they won't verify me as his dependent. we have sent in form after form after marriage certificate after social security papers. and they still won't verify me. they want a tax return from the last 6 months. i don't know if anyone has noticed, but tax time was more than 6 months ago. and doc didn't file this year. so we don't have that form.

we have 13 more days until i'm cut off for the year, and i really fear i will be uninsured. i don't know why i don't qualify for medicaid when Rand Paul's son does. i'm on medicare. i make $0 in income per year. i'm really disillusioned with the ACA right now, but not because it is a bad thing, but because of the way the company chose to react to it.
