Hi. My daughter has cf and is about to lose her ssi if she chooses to get married. how does she get into the high risk pool and is it too late? I am confused with all of the info and am just learning about it and maybe she wont be able to afford any insurance. She does not work but her fiance makes under 3000.00 a month and they have two babies.

Rhonda, depending on the state your daughter lives in, there should be either a state-run "PCIP" (aka: Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan) or a federal-run PCIP available. I don't know enough about all the eligibility rules, but for better or for worse, I think that the federal PCIP may be geared toward people who have been denied coverage for 6 months or more, but I don't know how SSI is viewed in this light.

Here's the website where you can find the type of PCIP for your state: <a target=_blank class=ftalternatingbarlinklarge href="http://www.healthcare.gov/law/provisions/preexisting/index.html

Good luck!
