I dunno, but that is a good question I'll be sure to ask them next time I'm in contact. Which will undoubtedly be soon.
My burning question: What if you pay all your bills in cash? I know, unheard of these days. How will the insurance companies know whose cash was used to pay the medical bills?

We did card over the phone. Insurance denied it anyway, but the provider says it is BS and they will get it reversed on appeal for us. Hope so.

Anyway, drug companies are also the worst. A state shouldn't have to go into the drug manufacturing business just to deal with price gouging for life saving medication, but here we are. At least he has a solution for Californians, right on.

It’s simple. People should not go into debt to get life-saving medication.

We need real health insurance in this country.

Husband is about to ship out to the Army and he wanted to ensure that his (new) wife & baby had insurance before he left. I asked if they wanted to get out and stand for the ceremony, but they didn't want to wake the baby + they were in the parking lot of a convenience store.2/3
Despite the unusual and not so formal wedding venue, they were grateful, weepy, and full of joy. I just want to wish that adorable couple a long marriage and a very happy life together! ⚖️

I"m just glad they were able to find a compassionate judge in Texas. The odds of that aren't necessarily all that good.

Isn't the 72 hours between license and ceremony antiquated?

It varies by state, I believe.
