I know you hear all the time about how life is not fair for gay/lesbian couple- and some of you straight folk get tired of it- but damn I am so frustrated.
I have been covered under Jen's health insurance as a Domestic Partner forever- and believe me- we pay a high price. She left her job in October- so I elected COBRA- OK great- it took months to get it going- in February they finally billed me for 4 months- OK, all is fine and dandy- so I paid an arm and a leg- then just this week they decided that Domestic Partners are not covered under COBRA- so now I have lost my continuation of coverage since November 1st. Had I known this I would have gotten other insurance in November. Now I have a 12 month pre-existing clause- and with my illness- that is so not fair- if I was straight this would never have happened. I am so frustrated and there is nothing I can do.
They are sending me back my premiums- but I would much rather have health insurance. UG!
