We had insurance when I had my son through my job, so when I quit we lost the insurance. My son is on Molina, but my DH and I are uninsured. My son is 2 this summer, and I'm 28. I'm getting sick of waiting for my DH to find a job with insurance (he works 2 jobs that equal 50 hrs a week), and I'm working 2 part-time jobs (12 hrs a week) I like, but they don't offer insurance. Has anyone gone off bc knowing you'd be using Medicaid?
I know I pay into the system that allows for this, but I still feel guilty for some reason. I was talking to a pregnant friend about my cycles and questions I have, and she asked why I don't just see my midwife about it. I felt totally awkward telling her I didn't have insurance, and she's one of my best friends. If I could convince my husband, we'd plan to have and pay for a home birth, but have the Medicaid for prenatal up to 20 weeks and then there just in case I have to transfer care for some reason, but I know he won't want to do that.
Anyways, anybody else deal with this type of situation? How did you work past it?
