Hello fellow Lupies. I have a few questions I can't seem to find the answer to. My PCP "diagnosed" me with lupus some time before Christmas, however there is no formal diagnosis on paper. Only symptoms, tests, treatments, etc. He set up an appt for me next month with a rheumy for treatment.
I had insurance through my employer, but it was taken away because my health wouldn't allow me to work full time.
My husband and I applied for private health insurance, since he works construction (he can't keep coverage continously).
This is the problem I'm facing. If I have scheduled an appointment, before insurance was actually issued, are they going to deny coverage? Will anything that falls under the lupus category now be pre-existing? The waiting list is long for the rheumy and I need to start treatment.
Any insight/advice greatly appreciated.
