Question about health insurance

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am lucky to have two very healthy boys, however, because they are healthy, my ex thinks it would be a good idea to cancel their health insurance and put them on state-funded insurance, so he can save about $200 per month. He makes very good money ($80 to $100k) but I make well below the poverty line and would definitely qualify for the Oregon Health Plan.

I am trying to get across to him that they are better off with private insurance. Does anyone have any experiences they can share to help get my point across?

Thank you,
Lavender

Don't they normally take into consideration the other parent's income? I know they do in Washington state. And state insurance sucks!!

Oh yeah, my experience. DS needs speech therapy and it is not covered! So now I have to either fight or spend ridiculous amounts of time trying to figure out other options. I just want it to be covered without a hassle.
