COBRA Is Evil!!!

So I just got the Cobra paperwork from my former employer, enabling me to continue my healthcare benefits.  The cost is SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS per month!  $700.00!!!  That’s a seven and two zeroes.   On my greatly reduced Disability pay that should just about break me.  And God knows I can’t go without insurance!  I see the doctor and get zapped at least a few times a month, not to mention a bucket of prescriptions.  I’m not gonna lie.  I want to get stoned and pretend none of this is happening.  The bitch of it is, I seem to be getting some depression hangover every time I get stoned any more.  God damn it!  What’s a girl to do when the drugs stop working???

  1. You beat me, Mine was $650. The whole Cobra program is a joke. Who could possibly pay that while they are on disability? I ended up having to go without for awhile before I was able to collect Medicare and Medical (California’s version of Medicicaid}. I hope you are able to cut through the bureaucracy and get the help you need.

    • Thanks Bradley. I don’t know what the hell I’m gonna do. I can’t go without because I need ECT and I definitely don’t qualify for Medicaid, I applied already 😉 CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!!!

  2. THe insurance in this country is fucked, I can’t get a mental health case manager because I have been barely able to keep a job. SO I don’t have medicate. … Well I a struggling at keeping this job so before I have to quit live maybe I can get a case worker to help me with life. .,, since on disabiliy don;t you auto qualify for medicaid if live in the us?
