So annoyed! I had applied for HIPU (health insurance pool that gives regularly priced premiums to people who have chronic conditions) anyways I received my letter today saying that I was denied because I'm eligible and currently covered under a group plan! I have a very horrible plan through my employer (20,000 max, and only 2,000 can be used for drs visits, lab work, tests, 600 for er visits, and 75 for prescriptions) anyways, it's not enough to cover my expenses. I had spoken with a health insurance agent and he said that because that plan isn't enough to cover me I shouldn't have a problem with getting the HIPU. I can't just drop the work insurance either because i'm still eligible for it and won't be approved for the HIPU. So basically I have to quit work in order for me to get insurance that will cover me. I'm annoyed! I was planning on quitting in a few months so i could focus on getting back to health, but now, erggg....
