A period where one is without insurance, i.e. your health, well-being, and/or investments are solely your risk
I was fired from my job and COBRA is too expensive. I guess I'll have to give up Ultimate Unicycling during this insurancelessness.
when you don't have health insurance and you are sick and need to see a doctor or dentist and you know that once you do, you will be living to pay them off, leaving you with no money for recreation whatsoever and you then in return despise the health insurance policies in the USA and continue to live like a pauper.
boy- i just spend $1000 out of my pocket for a root canal and now i'm broke.
girl- insurancelessness sucks.
