    Health insurance issue

    Oh No

    My dad was diagnosed and had brain surgery with no insurance and had been unemployed for over a year. He was able to get on state health insurance, after he had the brain surgery. he will lose it in a year because they will check his income and the disability he was able to get is too high to stay on the health insurance and he can't get medicare until hes been on Disability for 2 years
