Hi Steve,>

I found your website when poking around the internet to try to understand what will happen to my son’s coverage when his Cal Cobra expires on March 31, 2014.>

Here are the major questions/concerns:>

1) My son is diagnosed with bipolar mixed, PTSD and substance abuse. He is 24 years old, but since my spouse and I are on Medicare, we have no plan under which he can be covered until age 26.

*****He can get his own plan guaranteed issue don’t worry about the March 31 deadline to enroll because since he’s losing coverage that gives him a qualifying event which think it’s him another 60 days to enroll I can send you the citation for that if you like>

2) Currently, his plan is an HSA [Health Savings Account] (which he doesn’t need since he has no income) with Anthem Blue Cross. His current address is in the LA side of 91361.

****I’ll send you quotes when I get back to my office or click here >

3) He is in appeals for SSI (at the Council level since he has been denied three times); he is not on Medical and that would absolutely be our last choice for him because of his illness. His most recent hospitalization was May 17 of this year; we need to keep his coverage at the highest level possible.

***[Voice to text – please excuse the poor English]  If he’s not working if you’re not taking him as a deduction he can then go into covered California and that would qualify him for Medi-Cal CAL not Medicare I few want to have better coverage than if you pay the premiums I have full price no no tax advantages then that’s fine and I’ll send you those quotes I get back to my office>

So, what would be the best choice to continue his coverage? I would really prefer that UCLA be one of the providers because their psychiatric services are probably the best in the greater LA area. In addition, his current psychiatrist is an Anthem Blue Cross provider.

****Blue Cross doesn’t have their list up in full yet but I do believe that if you look at UCLA’s website and it says that all the Blue Cross plans and Covered  California cover them>

Any advice that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

***See above and covered California pays me for my time and expertise if you do go into Medi-Cal CAL I probably won’t get paid in that so you just have to decide if you wanted to Medi-Cal or you just want to pay the regular premiums and go into we know what if you pay the premiums you even need covered California can just go direct to the insurance companies and it’s less hassle I’ll send you the quotes when I get to my office
