I think my HIV nurse is misinformed
« on: August 02, 2015, 07:33:22 PM »
According to her, all I have to do to get health insurance is send the state the bill and tell them when to pay it. I have a platinum Obama plan that I love. Has anyone heard of such a thing?

I am sure she means well

If she's talking about the regular premium assistance available to everyone depending on income.  That amount is calculated when you apply, and the premium assistance is sent to the insurer directly, you're still responsible for the balance. 

I've never used Ryan White/AIDS drugs assistance programs which can also pay premiums, but from posts here, there seem to be a lot of hoops to jump through and you should probsbly take advantage of the counsellors at your local ASA to get hooked up with that.
