Master List of limited time opportunities created by the COVID-19 crisis I've already posted about NYS opening a special open enrollment period to sign up for Health Insurance in the individual marketplace.

Also eligibility for Medicaid, Essential Plan and Child Health Plus now use updated Federal Poverty Levels.

Some life insurance companies are underwriting up to certain amounts and ages WITHOUT A PHYSICAL EXAM. That doesn't mean that someone who has health issues gets better treatment, as they will use other background checks, but for those that fear or just dislike an exam this is a great opportunity.

I am able to help people with health and life insurance opportunities created.

Please post other opportunities you are aware of.

Re: Please Sign My Petition :) I think @jj1000 should give everyone 100 likes. 200 if they are married and 50 for every extra child.

Re: Coronavirus Stimulus Aid Package
This is the answer. They just want to get the money out there already.
Just drop it from helicopters.  :)

Re: Coronavirus Stimulus Aid Package
is it a credit against 2020 tax return?
If tax filers did not make 75k/150k last year but make more than 75k/150K in 2020 will they be required to return the cash next year?
Not the way I read it. You keep the cash.

Re: Life insurances waiving medical exam requirements
wow, so a young diabetic, smoker, or obese person, can hop on now?
A young diabetic is probably on medications. They will go to the medical records and likely find out everything else.

The lack of physical doesn’t mean that the underwriting decisions change, it just means different tools are used. You are expected to answer questions truthfully.

Re: When is this country going to be back to normal?
We will defeat it. It should give us new perspective.

Look at what it has already given us on a communal level.

This is from a list a friend posted on FB.
No need for lavish over the top weddings and simchos.
Endless and unnecessary shopping.
Rethink the need for Pesach Programs.
Rethink the need for over the top fine dining.
Seminary/Yeshiva in Israel.

I for one am looking forward to being able to marry off my kids at a way lower standard than I could have ever dreamed of.

I think it will change the way this country does business with and relies on foreign supply chains. It will awake the country to the dangers of diseases that we were never open to accepting. Almost everyone that I spoke to 3 weeks ago laughed it off. That has changed drastically and will live on in peoples psyche for a long time.
I don't see any of those things being long-term changes.

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
Where's the post about the Nobel prize winner saying he would be surprised if they're over 10 deaths in Israel.

It's at 100+

What about the ones that predicted 5000 in severe conditions with 2000+ dead (in Israel)? The nobel peace guy is a hell of a lot closer. This has destroyed dozens of families in the frum world. But the hysteric people were predicting thousands of dead in the frum community. This is the good news thread, lets keep it that way

Re: Succos supplies affected?
Even if there aren't issues, it will be given as a reason for high prices...

Either way, that's too far from now to predict.

yea but everyone will get a basic set if shuls are still closed since no need to show off.

Re: Kosher Meals from DOE Brooklyn and Queens
This is only for kids, parents do not get from this program.
Also you should really thank them, this took a ton of effort to get started and now since no other yeshiva seems to do it, they are currently providing meals for about a thousand kids, and more will sign up when the open the link again tonight.
Correct on it being for kids, but they're not sending individually packaged meals. You write how many kids, and they send it all together - and in abundance based on the first pickup this week. So for example, there was a tin of baked ziti, which is supposed to be 1 lunch for 4 kids. But it's way more than my 4 kids can eat.

And absolutely, this is a huge help for the community. There are certainly families for which this is a lifeline. And even for those that financially don't need it as much, it's a huge convenience at a time when things are difficult managing everything in a house full of kids. It means less trips out to the stores for parents. The pickup system appears to be relatively safe and efficient. As far as it being offered to more than just BYQ - they are the provider/caterer for school lunch for several schools, which is why I believe they started off with some other schools included in the program right off the bat. But that doesn't take anything away from what a big deal, and big effort the whole program is. Kudos to Simcha Noble.
