health insurance

Oops, forgot to ask for some info.

I can no longer afford to pay for insurance for my daughter and me, cant risk not making the rent payment on time for this apartment.

So i submitted for my health ins. thru the V.A., and in 3 weeks got the letter from them telling me i am now covered thru the V.A. and got my veterans i.d. card.
So now my daughter any thing in particular i should concentrate on while shopping for a health ins. policy for her. She is 18 y/o, and in junior college.

While i know the policy wont be as good as i currently have thru my employer, i cant afford paying the payments for "cobra" anymore. And i wont dare risk letting her go uninsured.
I've had insurance my whole life but never had to shop fpr it, was always thru the military, then thru my employer.

I also for the 1st time in my adult life had to cancel my life ins. policy due to the money situation.

It's always something,is'nt it. No rest for the weary.

Thanks in advance.

    If your daughter is a healthy child I would consider buying the insurance that covers only emergencies. Also since she is still in school so she should be able to buy a policy thru the school at a decent rate. There are alot of options for a healthy young adult.

  • Hi and thanks.

    I did look at her schools website and was directed to a website www. american college student assoc.
    It looks like i can get her health ins. there at a good rate while she is in school.

    That will give me a couple of years to see how rest of this pans out.

    Thanks again.
