I always learn how things work, sometimes a little late.

Re: Part time w*rk with medical insurance.

Most of the jobs listed are those which most FIRED folk would not want to do. I really do not see myself working in Home Depot, a Supermarket, or UPS for 21 hours a week for healthcare. May as well be back at work full time doing a job one enjoys. 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 week 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 .

Re: Part time w*rk with medical insurance.

This thread is a reminder of how lucky I am. I am working 60 to 80 hours a month (in months when I am working) and I am able to be covered by our health insurance plan at a relatively small cost to me. Sometimes <gasp> working isn't so bad!
