The good news is the website worked just great - and not only that, but due to my current (poor) economic status, I am fully eligible for Medicaid - which will cost me zero dollars.
The bad news? Well, currently - in Nevada alone - there were 38,000 people who also were eligible for Medicaid just in the past three weeks! Thus the wait time can be up to 60 days before I get my card. I was told they are hiring over 200 people just to try to catch up with the huge number of applicants.
Oh well - better late than never - and free is good. (Of course, when I finally get my new job, I will have to let them know and go to a slightly different plan that will cost me - but that is OK too, as then I can afford to pay it.)
