I need to learn more about our particular situation, how much we are really going to pay, and by when and what the penalties will be, but the whole thing is stressing me out. We lost our subsidized insurance because of an inheritance, and have to wait 3-5 years to have a place again (little more than a year left to reach the 3year mark.)
Both dh and I are self-employed, homeschooling parents and I don't know how we are going to afford this when the time comes. What a shit time to implement a plan that I am otherwise on board with.
I am thankful that the girls still have their medical insurance through DSHS, which, in WA only counts actual income to determine eligibility. I was literally in tears when DSHS told me that the girls would keep their insurance, and again this year when I resubmitted eligibility forms. I can't believe how much this is stressing me. I'm 43, dh is 50 in October, and insurance is not cheap for our ages.
Sigh... I guess this is just a rant. I really need to get in gear and find out exactly what our situation will be...
Am I the only one flipping out?
