I recently moved to another state. When I left my previous job, I couldve taken COBRA, but dumb me..I didn't know if I'd have a job quickly, (and it was very expensive), so I declined it. I found a short term plan online. Well, the plan ran out after a month, I had my dates off and didn't renew it in time...so it expired. I have applied to 3 different plans now and have been declined each time. I had an emergency gall bladder removal in 2000 in the ER (no problems since), then I had endometriosis and had surgery and Lupron injections in 2006 and 2007. After that, I started having the back problems and finally diagnosed with Fibro in 2008. I have had numerous injections, nerve ablation, nerve blocks, PT, medications, doctors, etc.. since then (but not THAT numerous....) I also take meds for highblood pressure. I don't know what to do. I know that since I've had this lapse, I will have pre-existing condition exclusions IF I am ever to get covered, so I will have to suck it up and self-pay for my pain dr visits and I have the Walgreen's plan for my prescriptions. But I'm just concrened that I'm walking around with no insurance...what if I get in an accident or need my appendix removed or something drastic? Where can I find someone to approve my application? I've tried several plans on ehealthinsurance.com, only to be denied. I'm scared!!
