Insurance

by Gary
(Lakeland, Florida, United States)

I am 21 and I will not be able to use my moms insurance soon. My job doesn't offer insurance to part time employees. I was wondering what the best insurance companies might be for a crohn's patient to go through. I'm not necessarily looking at the lowest cost but the best for the buck.


Thanks

Insurance advice before I see a doctor.

by Roberto
(AZ)

I am looking for basic help from people that have gone through similar situations as myself in hopes to shed some light on the best route for me.

I am 27 years old and have had the symptoms of Crohn's for about 14 years now. I went to a specialist once when I had a little money saved at age 21. After spending a few minutes with him he informed me that before I went any further with testing I should get insurance before he diagnoses me.

Here I am six years later and after giving somebody 20 dollars to cut in front of him in a long bathroom line because I was having a flare up I have decided enough is enough.

I currently do not have insurance but do not want to sign up with a company that will end up totally screwing me over.

In the meantime I imagine that I will start with the fish oil since I have yet to try it. I have tried other natural remedies in the past to no avail.

I appreciate any input, thanks.

Help! Insurance and Crohn's !!

by Haley
(Atlanta, Ga)

I am 24 years old and was on my parents insurance while in college until I took a semester off and was knocked off their insurance. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with Crohn's during this time and now I can't get coverage anywhere. My doctor said my best bet was to get a job with the government. However, I am still in school and I would like to finish before I jump into a job I don't want...just because I need the insurance. I don't want Crohn's to run my life like that. Has anyone experienced this? I need help, advice or suggestions... Please!

Lack of insurance

by Claudine Young
(Lake Jackson, Texas)

My grandson who is 30 years old was diagnosed with Crohn's disease about 2 years ago. His job does not offer group insurance and because of his disease private insurance is unaffordable for him. Therefore he is not under a doctor's care and takes laxatives after almost every meal to try to manage the pain.

I am very concerned as he continues to lose weight and has no energy. Could someone please tell me if there is some organization or group that will help. I know he should be under a doctor's care.

I would also like to find a local support group for him.

Obtaining Health Insurance With Crohn's

by John Fierro
(Mesa, AZ )

My 24 year old son was just diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. He has recently applied for admission into optometry school. He can/will be covered under our insurance until he's 26. Hopefully at that point, he will be in the middle of his optometry curriculum.
Can anyone offer any information on obtaining health insurance? I contacted the Arizona State agency dealing with insurance for people with pre-existing conditions. I was informed that he would not be able to apply for coverage since he is currently covered. Starting in 2014, insurance companies can no longer exclude people from coverage due to pre-existing conditions. He will be 26 in August of 2013. At that point, he will be without coverage until 2014 arrives but according to current regulations, he cannot apply for coverage until he has been without coverage for 6 months (who came up with that regulation?) which means he cannot apply until February of 2014.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I know I have 2 years to deal with this and who knows what the government will come up with by then but I'm just trying to be pro-active.

Just a thought, instead of us sending billions of dollars to other countries, can't we help our own first and then take care of the rest of the world?

Sincerely,
John

insurance for pre-existing crohns disease under obamacare

by John Fierro
(Mesa AZ)

My son was diagnosed with Crohn's disease 18 months ago when he was 24. He will be turning 26 this August. As Obama Care's insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions will not go into effect until January 2014, we will keep my son on our insurance utilizing the COBRA option.

Does anyone have information on pre-existing insurance coverage? I have contacted several of the larger insurance companies but came away with basically no information. This is supposed to go into effect on January 1!

If anyone can provide me with some direction, I would be sincerely grateful.

Thanks,

John
