The insurance apparently has been fixed - we've been added to Dan's insurance through work - I can leave the house again! :)

In all the digging I've been doing, I'm composing a rather nasty letter to send off to Connecticare, Blumenthal (the state AG), my former employer, the CT Dept. of Insurance and CT Dept. of Consumer affairs. Apparently dropping a pregnant woman from COBRA insurance due to an employer's nonpayment of premiums is quite ugly and unfair, but somehow still legal. Yes, we have insurance now, and I should probably stop the whining, but I'm sorry, that's just not right. There's something seriously wrong with healthcare in America.

Glad to hear that everything worked out.

I'm glad you're covered again - some insurance plans consider pregnancy a pre-existing condition and refuse to cover it! Seriously broken is an understatement. Don't forget a note to your state and national representatives - it's not whining, it's their reason for existence. Oh, and I trust you got a full, prompt, and cheerful refund of your COBRA payments for the period you weren't covered.
