I definitely love Bloomington and think it's different than a lot of Indiana. However, I have encountered a lot of problems with health care. I'm not working right now because I'm taking the bar exam in February; and therefore, didn't have insurance. I applied for insurance on the exchange but was told that I don't earn enough and to apply for Medicaid. The Medicaid office said I'm not eligible because I don't have kids or a disability. I fall in the "gap" created in states that didn't expand Medicaid. I also went to Planned Parenthood and asked for a reduced rate on my birth control because I'm not working. She shamed me into leaving without taking any because she said that the donations really weren't to be used freely to help people out. I was shocked. Luckily, I have family that have reorganized some things to help me pay for insurance. I am just so frustrated!
