NORTH CAROLINA -- After my husband was laid off his job in late June, we were told we would go into state continuation insurance instead of cobra. My husband dropped his plan but as his spouse I was allowed to keep the policy. They kept raising my price on my policy until I could not pay it, I was told by BCBS that I could go on a federal plan that started on September 1st. I said great because I would have to pay only 35%. Well, now they say that I do not qualify because my husband stopped his policy too soon. But they don't tell me until two months later. Now I cannot get any insurance so I am extremely upset with BCBS.
For one person, I was paying 734.49 Monthly. There is a lot more complaining I could do but I just hope this helps someone to use a better insurance company.
