    You may continue to excuse The Obama at your leisure. I shan't stop you.

    -I- will wait unil gas goes up again, and when you're among the first to blame all the SUVs on the road for creating the demand that raised those prices, I will remind you that you supported The Obama and His efforts to put them there.

    here is some garbage for you to peruse, highlighted by Greta van Susteren

    VAN SUSTEREN: This is to show that you understand because the president wants transparency. "Section 133, requiring information transparency and planned disclosure." That's a good idea. (INAUDIBLE) OK. "A, accurate and timely disclosure. Subsection 1. In general, a qualified health benefits plan shall comply with standards established by the commissioner for the accurate and timely disclosure of plan documents, plan terms and conditions, claims, payment policies and practices, periodic financial disclosure, data on enrollment, data on disenrollment, data on the number of claims denial"...

    (LAUGHTER)

    VAN SUSTEREN: ... "data on rating practices, information on cost sharing and payments with respect to any out of network coverage and other information as determined appropriate by the commissioner. The commissioner shall require that such disclosure be provided in plain language" -- is my favorite! And then goes on to talk about plain language, which I just want to read for a second. "Plain language section 2. As defined in this subsection, the term plan language means language that the intended audience, including individuals with limited English proficiency, can readily understand and use because the language is clean, concise, well organized and follows other best practices of plain language (INAUDIBLE)" -- these people are insane! These people are totally insane!

If she lost her job and didn't get a new one within a specified time period and her Cobra ran out then my dad would be a new subscriber and could be denied coverage by most insurers at that point. And she pointed out one also has to be able to lose their job while simultaneously affording to keep Cobra as long as possible.

    So I suppose it's still an issue, but not as big of one as I previously thought. I had no idea about this HIPAA law so thanks.
    Those are all valid fears. The law is not perfect, but it's better than nothing. If your mother wants to change jobs, she should definitely have new one lined up before quitting the one she has now. Cobra could tie her over for a couple of months if she had to use it, but it is very expensive.

    The good thing about Cobra is that you have 60 days to enroll in it. I've left that option open a few times til my new insurance became effective. If a tragic illness had occurred before the 60 day deadline or before my new coverage started, I could have elected Cobra coverage.
