This implies I do not enjoy shelf stacing or lugging around parcels. Now if I could get a nice gig doing something I like to do for 20 hours a wekk that may be a solution.
If I could just find a private employer who would let me work low hours , I would not mind paying 100% of the group rate for insurance.* $300-$400*is ok $650 for the california guranteed issue coverage is just too high.
Maybe if I started a business and only hired young healthy people and got a group plan , uh oh , I guess that's good business illegal .
Another thing I am thinking about , is getting a high deductable policy in a state that allows exclusions for pre existing conditions, and travel for medical care if something big happens. It appears that coverage is much easier to get in a state that allows the exclusions. I'm ok with the risk on my known broken parts .
