The Affordable Care Act and provisions providing expanded MediCaid have survived assault of repeal. - at least for the immediate future. Take advantage of the ACA and its provisions.
There is no extensive "red tape" (your quote).
Most individuals receive premium payment assistance from the government.
As far as being expensive, I know finances are individual for each person. But one MRI without insurance is over $1,000. One new patient visit with a specialist $450 or more.
I have had extensive medical care that would have bankrupt me without the fact that I have always made it a point to have comprehensive medical insurance. Costs associated with medical care and pharmaceutical drugs have grown exponentially since the 1980's and beyond.
Each state provides what are called "insurance navigators" to guide people in the selecting a medical insurance plan off of the
open exchange and determining eligibility for federal assistance toward premium reimbursement or MediCaid eligibility. Working with an insurance navigator will not cost you a penny - the expenses of providing the navigators is collectively borne by the insurance industry providers.
I urge you to take advantage of the Affordable Care Act and expanded MediCade and contact an insurance navigator to hand-hold you theough the process.
