Does anyone here know of the blue pathway child on plan from blue cross/blue shield of Texas?

DD's medicaid expires in June, can't renew because me and DH make more than the income limit.

Neither myself or DH have insurance for our self, as long as our DD is covered then that would be good.

I did input DD's birth date to get a quote, gave me a result for a deductible of $2500, coverage at 75%, including dental @ $158 PM.

Did you look into CHIP? It has higher income limits than Medicaid.

The annual income maximum for a family of three for CHIP is $38,180. If you're making way more than that, then you should just pay for health insurance for the three of you through your husband's job. Your daughter's loss of Medicaid coverage would probably count as a qualifying event to allow you to enroll even if it's not the annual enrollment period...your husband would have to check with the HR person at his work for that.

Carelink is a county program for uninsured people whose income is below 300% of federal poverty level, which is $57,520 for a family of three. Your monthly payment depends on your income and not on your expenses...they don't care if you have a high mortgage payment and two car payments when they decide how much you can pay. You only have a payment when you owe a balance. You have to requalify every six months, and if your income increases, not only does your monthly payment increase, but any back balance you're paying on will increase as well.

this is just not practical, as i am the higher income earner, plus either way, getting insurance thru my employer will take half my wage, as well as insurance thru DH's employer will take half his wage - again this is not practical for us.

Care Link should be through the University Hospital. Call them and ask about it. Long lines to get started but very worth it.

Another thing I would do is call several peditricians and ask what they suggest.

It is great that you are being proactive and I can understand the need for insurance as I have a child with serious medical issues.
