Hello Fellow Survivors,
I am a 20-year-old college sophomore who was diagnosed w/ thyroid cancer when I was 14. I will be entering the work force shortly and was wondering about the whole insurance coverage thing. Have those of you who have jobs now run into any problems with insurance companies denying you coverage or hiking up monthly costs? And what about companies who provide coverage except for pre-existing conditions (e.g. what if my cancer returns in 15 years...will my provider cover treatment fees?) I know a lot of it depends on what type of company you work for and which insurance policy you go w/, but I would just like to see how you all have dealt w/ this issue. Any response would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
