I like to think I could wildswan as I hope to downsize my house in the near future

Everytime I try to sign up online it won’t allow me to to put in any date of birth after about 2002!

Thanks for your replies anyway

I have no idea. Would you be able to pay the increased premiums should more grandchildren come along?

Sorry I’ve no idea but didn’t want to just read and retreat. Could you ask Google?

My daughter and son in law don’t have health insurance and can’t afford it. I don’t have it either.

Obviously I have discussed this with her and she is more than happy.

Are you his guardian? If not, have you discussed this with his parents?

A minor is usually covered by his parents insurance.

Just that really!

I work in healthcare - and despair.
I don’t want my grandson having to wait for, or being refused treatment - should he ever need it.

Tonight I tried to sign up online to get cover for him (he’s 20 months) before he has any ‘pre existing’ conditions but don’t seem to be able to.

Any ideas please?!
