KIDS ARE EXPENSIVE
Im a single mom. Currently, my son and I are both covered under my mom's health insurance (COBRA) Its insanely expensive but its really good insurance. My son's father is just starting to step up and has offered to look into covering Jackson under his health insurance. I have never "shopped" for health insurance and I dont really know what to look at. How do I know if its good coverage? Can someone explain a deductable to me? I understand the co-pays but I dont know if I should be basing an insurance choice on co-pays. Also, for those of you familiar with COBRA, if my ex loses this job (he doesnt have such a good track record on keeping jobs) would my son be able to re-apply for COBRA? Im still in school until December, so the chances of me being able to cover him in that situation would not be likely. One more insurance question, my ex lives and works in another state as us. Would that affect his ability to cover him? Would my son still be able to see his doctor? Im so stressed out over this. And question #2. To other parents in the community, can you share some kid-friendly foods or recipies? My son is at the lovely age of refusing to eat and the prepackaged snacks (cereal bars, gerber Graduate crap) is really expensive. I get so frustrated when I spend 45 min making him something and then having to throw it away because he wont touch it and its not something that I can keep and try again later. oh, kids.
