n. I don't want any opinions on the law or snarky comments or even good comments. I am just wondering what to expect and I am not getting any good answers. Our govener, whom I hate, turned down the extra Medicaid subsidies. And he ended our state's low income safety net healthcare carrier. He's such a peach, I tell ya!!! But anyhow, what happens now? I have Medicare because I'm on SSDI, but I no longer will get state insurance and will have to buy a policy that subsidizes Medicare. Any good ones? Do they cover prescriptions? What about the rest of the family? Are these high deductible policies? We are going to crunch and go for the best policy we can get, even at having less food in the house. I already only shop for food a few times a month, but after the kids leave, hub and I don't eat much anyway. We need a family policy. Has anybody figured this out yet? Wisconsinites very welcome...or any other state where the gov. turned down Medicaid. I am afraid we will have to move back to Illinois just to get healthcare, but nobody in the family wants to move to Illinois. I sure don't want to leave Jumper and Sonic and neither does Tom. Also Julie is only three hours away in Chicago. However, it has not escaped our notice that every surrounding state has taken the Medicaid subsidy. Again, I only want facts, not opinions. I don't expect that too many know too much themselves, but if anyone does, I'm up for a lesson We make about $40K a year, which will go down considerably after Sonic moves out next year....maybe $27K. Not sure how much that matters. Before you gasp, cost of living is low here along with wages, but that is still not a lot to live on. Any help?
