Re: “The 10-day cancellations and the rocky transition off of the private option

I got the cut off from insurance letter ,but not the 10 day income report letter. DHS did not or could not process my change of address. I sent it in on their change form and in a timely manner. My address was old and the letter if it went out never made it to me. And after checking I am eligible for the plan I was on. And have been terminated from. I have given the income info to DHS. But have no proof of doing that. And I have sent in a appeal letter. Meanwhile I went and got a 30day policy that has a very large deductible for the (in case I get run over by a semi senario).From what I have read the state is not giving the 90 day timeline (Feds) that is required to allow a person to get the information to them.

Re: “Is that state 10-day insurance cutoff fair?

I moved and quickly sent a letter to DHS with my new address. Then found out I had to send in a change form. Which I did to my local DHS. The address was never changed. And I did not get the 10 day notice. But I did get the letter from my insurance company that my coverage had already ended. When I ask about the address problem an employee of DHS told me that it was a system problem. They had a different system for the health care and it had not been corrected in that one. Upon getting the no coverage letter I went to DHS with my income proof. And sent out an appeal letter. And went and got a short term plan with BCBS. Glad I am in fairly good health. Glad next year I will go into private option and no more DHS for me.
