Question: I am a single parent with a job that does qualify my children for all kids coverage under the guidelines, however, when you add my child support into our income, we have too much. My shopping around is getting us nowhere fast, insurance comparable to bcbs is ranging from $590.00-$900.00 a month. What can you suggest? I really had hoped that bcbs all kids would cover them.Thank you.

Question: My mom is currently insured under COBRA/CAL-COBRA (which expires Oct. 1, 2008). She applied for the Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Families" health care coverage and was denied coverage. The reasons being: she has High Cholesterol, was diagnosed with tendonitis of the shoulder and bursitis of the hip (she gets steroid injections to relieve the pain) and was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome with surgery performed on the left hand in April 2007. Can you please suggest an affordable health insurance plan that will not deny her? She is 64 and will be 65 in 2009.
