I am glad that I don't ask my unsaved friends and family for advice on things. However, that means I will be bothering you folks a lot more LOL I am on my ex husband's medical insurance. I am also on disability for fibromyalgia and I receive medicare. His union wants me to sign a affadavit stating that I am NOT eligle for any other medical insurance, including medicare. Of course I will tell them the truth. The point is, I really dont want medicare, I prefer private insurance. If I " give up" medicare and choose his private coverage, can the union FORCE me to take govt medicare? I am almost tempted to hang on to medicare because suppose in a year or so he looses his job, then I have no coverage. Yet I hate relying on the govt for everything. I don't even want the disability but it seems I need it. Is it biblical to accept things from the govt? As a stewart, shouldnt I be forgoing the medicare and just using the private insurance? I really don't want to be one of those sucking the system dry when there IS an alternative. What does the bible say about this?
