I am 52 years old I am a gleason score of 6, I chose surgery as I would like this cancer removed from my body as I have heard of people watch and wait and one of them has passed, he just waited to long I guess.
I had no insurance for 3 years after going into business for myself. My wife and I had been discussing putting me on her insurance (blue cross blue shield of Oklahoma. We did in April of 2011. May 6th of 2011 I was diagnosed with this cancer. Early this week I decided to have the surgery and called the doctor and put it all in motion, The surgery was set for July 14th, until today!!! I recieved a call from the nurse informing me that the insurance compny will not pay on pre exsisting conditions for a period of one year. How ever they did pay for the biopsy, well half of it anyway I had a 1,000 deductable plus another 100 plus dollars.
My question is does anyone know about any of the new laws that passed about this subject, I really honestly had no clue that I had cancer. Any advice?
