My employer pays for my health insurance. I pay for health insurance for my daughter’s through my employer.
He is self-employed and has paid for his own insurance. His insurance plan is coming to an end, so he has to look for something else.
He went to some sort of talk this afternoon by a major health insurance carrier.
He said that even if his income was up to 400 percent of the poverty level that the government would subsidize his health insurance, but because I get insurance through my employer, the government won’t subsidize any of his insurance. And that makes his insurance very expensive.
I can get health insurance for the whole family through work, spouse and children, with my employer still paying for my personal health insurance. If I did that, his “portion” would be cheaper than the non-government subsidized health insurance he could buy on his own.
Ugh!!! I hate this stuff!
It makes sense financially to put him on my health insurance at work and have him “pay” me each month for what would be taken out of my paycheck for his insurance.
And in a decent relationship, I would have no problem at all with that.
But this “marriage” is, well, you know. Either you live it yourself or you read my blog or both.
I don’t even know if I care anymore what he does.
He probably would pay me each month. Probably.
And should we split, I could change my insurance back to just me and my daughters.
Tomorrow is the deadline for me to make any changes in my insurance plan if I want to.
I wish things could just be peaceful and easy with no insane drama in my head.
Just love and joy and peace.
