Thanks. But I feel like we are talking about different things here.
I want to get on Colorado Health First. This is a Medicaid program, in that it is government funded.
I believe I may quilify for it because of Type 1 which is a listed Disability.
I am not Disabled to the point I cant work. I really don’t feel disabled at all, besides that injecting daily or die thing.
I don’t want what most people call Disability Pay, I want good health insurance that will not change because of a preexisting condition.

Health First Colorado Buy-In Program For Working Adults With Disabilities
The Health First Colorado Buy-In Program for Working Adults with Disabilities lets adults with a disability who qualify to “buy-into” Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program). If you work and earn too much to qualify for Health First Colorado you may qualify. If you qualify, you pay a monthly premium. Your monthly premium is based on your income.
You must be between 16 and 64 years old,
You must be employed,
You must have a qualifying disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) listings describes what disabilities qualify, and
Your income must be below 450% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). For example, you can make about $4,523 a month and qualify.
You are not required to apply for SSA disability. If you do not have a current disability determination from the Social Security Administration, fill out the Health First Colorado Disability Application and Medical release form on the How To Apply page. We will determine if you qualify using the Social Security Administration (SSA) listings, without regard to your substantial gainful activity or your ability to work.
