I have health insurance through my husbands work right now and he is a public sector employee. For this year we do not want to rock the boat so to speak so I will not take the health insurance offered through the school. The board meeting for my approval is tomorrow night PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for me. So my main reason for writing this post is because last week I received a letter from my district stating temporary/subs will be limited to 4 days a weeks due to the health care mandate. I don't have the letter in front of me so you get the idea... I was a sub in the district so this is why I got the letter. Yesterday I get a call from the districts insurance person (where right now I have a verbal offer) and they say to me I will send you a form to your new school in September to get your cash instead of benefits form. I automatically say ok. then I say what is this for again and they say not taking the health insurance. They said to me since you didn't take it last year during your lts. once again I say ok thanks so much. I didn't run it past my husband but he agreed once I told him about the call that this year we will keep it the same even though my plan would be cheaper since I would be a lower pay scale or so we think. My paranoid brain thinks it was a tests. I know it's crazy. A friend of mine said it doesn't matter if they hire me I can take their insurance. Any way I guess this was more like a rant but I'm so nervous about not getting approved and people keep saying they approve 99 percent of the time.
