No more private health insurance for children?
September 11, 2010 2:56 PM Subscribe
I want to do the responsible thing and buy my children health insurance when our COBRA policy expires this month. I am being told that this is simply not possible due to the "unforeseen consequences" of healthcare reform going into effect 9/23/2010. Surely I'm missing something. Can someone explain what's going on and what I can do before they go uninsured 10/1?

Ehealthinsurance.com said that because of legislative changes, health insurance companies have decided to stop selling policies for children with an effective date after 9/23/2010. No one will sell me a policy despite the fact they are perfectly healthy and I am willing to pay whatever it takes. WTH?
Our COBRA policy is expiring, (we) parents cannot qualify for private insurance due to high-risk conditions.
