Unhappy Insurance Problems.

So heres a question for you.....I lost my insurance a while back when i couldn't find a job, I've been diabetic since i was 10. I haven't been to the Endocrinologist in over 2 years because i can't afford it.....i can't get on state help even though i don't make much..(they told me i'm to young and i don't have kids so i can't get it.) i can't afford to pay 300 a month for insurance and besides that no insurance will accept me......what do i do??? i'm getting scared for my health i don't want to be 24 and feel old because i never feel good.

have you tried the california high risk pool:
Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board

maybe check this site to see if you can find any other ways to get insurance or see a doctor
Benefits.gov - Your Path to Government Benefits

you will find a way! don't give up hope

Under the new Health Care bill you should be covered under your parents insurance until the end of the year you are 26. I think that went into effect last September.
