About 115,000 women lose their private health insurance coverage each year to divorce.
Orange, California (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
The University of Michigan reports that about 115,000 women lose their private health insurance coverage each year to divorce. And if that weren’t enough, adding confusion to a complicated and difficult time, women are then left to fend for themselves in affording and finding their own coverage.
And many stay without health insurance for a period of two years or more after the divorce.
Yet, salting the wound further, despite their financial situations, many of these women don’t qualify for state programs like Medicaid, leaving them to worry about their finances further because they can’t afford to see a doctor if they need to.
And until the Affordable Care Act is properly enacted and complete in 2014, it is unclear how women who stand to lose their health insurance coverage can protect themselves in these situations. In the meantime, HealthCompare, a nationally recognized health insurance comparison site, is one very important source for women affected by divorce and in need of securing coverage.
