3 yrs to 65. How to get insurance coverage?
If I leave FT work before turning 65 (we want to go FT), I had thought I'd be able to get health ins. coverage through the ACA marketplace here in Texas. Now, I'm not so sure.
A young woman I know well tried and was unable to get insurance through the ACA. She and her husband (who isn't covered, either) live on his income alone -- a little under $20k per year. They have a 4 y/o child, who does have insurance through a state program. The woman cannot work as she has a chronic, debilitating health issue. It's genuine. I know her and her health situation. She has been turned down by Medicaid and recently learned she was denied by the ACA marketplace. She said they told her she qualifies financially, but she still cannot get coverage from a carrier. She and her husband are very discouraged. They thought the ACA would answer their problems.
If you have secured health insurance in Texas through the ACA marketplace and are a FT RVer, I need to hear from you! We hope to start our FT adventure before I'm 65 (spouse is there already), but I must know that I can get health insurance before cutting the cord.
Thanks in advance for sharing your experience of success in securing health insurance coverage before turning 65!
