I left the job where I had health and life insurance benefits about one year after my prostatectomy. I was able to pick up health benefits at another employer where I work part-time, but have not yet checked on the possibility of term life insurance coverage.
At some point before reaching age 65 my wife and I may need to get health benefits on our own. Has anyone here run into problems getting health or life insurance coverage at a reasonable cost due to their history of prostate cancer?
