Hi all I am new to this site but have been a member on other single mother sites. I just wanted to share my story in hopes of helping others from going through the hoops I had to go through. First my son was born premature at 32 weeks. He then started having respiratory issues ( he was never formally diagnosed with asthma). So when I went back to work the government assistance I was receiving(medicaid and food stamps) were cut completely off and at this time I only made $9.00 an hour with no benefits. I then tried to get private insurance. Every place I called said either my premiums would be almost $500 dollars a month or I was flat out denied because he had a pre-existing condition (they considered a premature birth as a pre-existing condition). Fed up and frustrated I began searching the web and found this website that offered up to 85% discount on healthcare services for a low price. So when I went to the dentist instead of paying $100 for a visit I payed $50. The best part of it all they have other plans to like discounts for medical things as well. Here is the website I went to: www.mybenefitsplus.com/tburley Check it out it really helped me out!!!

Hi. Are you aware that solicitation is strictly prohibited, even if you make it sound like a story...
"Hey people I do not know, I thought I would pass along this great xxxx that I found that saved my thousands. " It's an advertisement.

I also forgot to mention that you can sign up right on the site as well no need to drive anywhere or meet anyone. I thought that was great and very convenient.

No it is not based on income at all you sign up for whatever plan works best for you and your family they even told me that the plans can cover family members that live with you (regardless of relation) I had alot of questions so I just clicked on the contact us button and they called me back the same day and answered all my questions. Maybe you can do the same and they can help you answer all the questions but I have been using it with no problems at all!!! Hope this helps.

I like how they show a provider list, and that I can save 25-65% on fillings and such. I go to the VA, so the only thing I need is dentist help. Do you have to provide income information? Is that dependent on what percentage I get off? Thanks for this information!
