I’m passing along a prayer request for my readers who pray. A woman on my parenting forum posted about her parents’ issues with their health insurance problems. Due to the insurance company’s greed, their new insurance premium will be $2,100 per month and they will have $1,500 per person and $3,000 per couple deductibles, and $60 copay on every prescription, and $50 copay on every office visit, and the insurance company will only cover 60/40 above the deductibles.
Essentially, no coveraage at all, for more than $25,000 a year just for the premiums. Both parents have serious health issues. They are taking medication that literally keeps them alive, and now they can’t afford it.
This kind of nonsense is legal. And I believe it’s a judgment against our nation that we are going to have to answer to before God Almighty, that we’ve effectively “sold the needy for a pair of sandals.”
The family has looked into Medicaid and all sorts of programs for the aging that are supposed to help in exactly this sort of situation, and they qualify for nothing.
Please pray for this family to find a solution. I can’t imagine how devastating this must be for all concerned.
