I Try to Look on the Bright Side But….
I just feel like I can’t catch a break no matter how hard I try. I called AARP this morning because Rick turns 50 next week and I know that they offer insurance at a discounted rate for their members. I spoke with three different people. I was initially told they use United Healthcare but the second lady said it was Aetna so the third person asked me questions such as is anybody being treated for a chronic or other illness which requires medication etc. and I said my daughter was. He can’t say anything because they can’t deny her medical coverage based on her previous medical conditions. He asked me questions about my health history. I thought it was best to tell him about carcinoma-in-situ but once I did he said I wouldn’t qualify for the insurance. See what I get for being honest. He told me they would have found out as they go back 5 years. It doesn’t matter if I have no issues, take no medicine etc. I think the American Cancer Society made it Stage O so the insurance companies could turn more people down because God forbid the insurance companies don’t make their millions of dollars.
Does anybody know where/how to go about finding private insurance? It looks like I will have a hard time getting it because of my non-invasive cancer issue.
I’m sorry I seem to be writing so much lately… maybe I should shut up a little bit more.
