Hey all - I need some info/advice if you don't mind. I am not quite 6 months post pancreas transplant, and will be losing my health insurance more than likely. I am likely ending up in divorce court soon (Gee, thanks for your love and suppost during the transplant and afterwards, jerk, lol) ANYWAY, he carries my health insurance, and I do not have insurance offered theough my job. I know when I was deemed "diabetic", I had to go theoughthe state of Illinois and use their ICHIP (Illinois Comprehensive Health Ins. Plan), which was quite costly, but when you need insurance, cost does not apply. Does anyone know if private insurance companies hold the same discriminatory policies against providing an individual plan for post transplant patients as they do pre-existing Type 1 diabetics? Any suggestions of who maight want to provid coverage fpr me? If not, I better start trying to go through the State now, so I get it in the next 3 years!!!!
