No offense taken. We would prefer to not be growing this club as we are. This is a question best answered by your benefits coordinator at your place of work. i can say that I switched insurance companies in the midst of treatment and while I was covered even with a pre-existing condition it was an annoyance at times. Even today, the lab that does my blood work, Qyest Diagnostics, bills my old insurance company regularly. Even though it's been 16 months since I had that insurance. But the key is that I was covered. And since you are with a company, you probably are too. but go ask, and then get to that urologists office. I would not delay this as cancer does not read premiums.
