how can i get my girlfriend health or dental insurance?
my girlfriend and i have been living together for a little over five years, we share a baby and an apartment. i have a good job that offers both health and dental although we must be married for her to be added. now truthfully i cant afford to pay for any insurances and she only works about 18 hrs a week so therefor she cant afford insurance either. we tried to apply with medicade and affinity and both denied her because i make to much money on paper. what other options do i have, im 21 and she 22 and already she has lost two teeth because of the breast feeding. pls help! oh, and i cant afford to get married yet.
