sick of being uninsured

I lost my job, lost my insurance. Now to get reinsured I have to pay over $800 a month with a $5000 deductable and no pre-existing condtions for 3 years. I am self employed, make over $40k a year, pay taxes. I recently had a reoccuance of a heart problem that had me in the hospital for 4 days, my bill was a little over $23,000. I got a handful of prescriptions that add up to about $250 per month and to get a doctor to talk with me it is $100 just to say hi. I am 56 years old and without proper medical treatment I will more than likely die before I am sixty. I live with that, no sour grapes but where is my clinic at? Where is my medicaid? I make too much money. My wife has just entered back into the workforce clearing $300 a week working at a retail store. And no she doesnt have insurance because she is only given 35 hours a week of work, since she is not working 40 hours she is not a full time worker thus unable to qualify for health insurance. The kids are grown and wonder if they could list us as a dependant. Who knows, its worth a try. Thanks GE.
