Question: I am retired and on Medicare with a BC/BS Medigap policy which continues to be administered by my former employer. I pay about $100/month for this coverage. If my previous employer discontinues this insurance, will I have the same COBRA-HIPPA options for continuation of the MediGap coverate that apply in layoff situations to persons who are not yet eligible for Medicare?

Question: A number of years ago, we had a layoff from my long time employer; only one of the senior staff remained. That person has an autistic child. Recently, I have been told that he could not be terminated because he had an uninsurable dependent. Is that true?
Question: I have recently changed jobs where the health insurance is very cheap for me but very expensive to add my wife. I'd like to get a private plan for her, but she takes several medications that could make it prohibitive. Is there some obvious option for this situation? She's otherwise healthy and I would consider high deductibles.
