There were a few posts in one of the topics in this forum about health insurance... Some mentioned that they don't have any... wow, I can only imagine how difficult that must be if you are dealing with medical issues!
My boyfriend (soon to be fiance ) is suffering from pericarditis, and was in the hospital (and the ICU for almost a week in the beginning of May). Thank god, he is recovering well and fingers are crossed that this is the last we see of the devil's death grip (that is what they call it!).
We have discussed, though, that he will never be able to give up his health insurance because it would probably be very difficult to get coverage after all this. That makes me worried, like what happens if his insurance carrier goes under? (It is no Blue Shield or Blue Cross or anything big like that). In addition, through my work, I get good coverage, and could add family members... But then what happens if I stop working? Then he is left in the dust...
I'm wondering if anybody here has dealt with similar issues... and what creative solutions you have devised in order to deal with it....?
