I never used to ask questions for fear of someone thinking I wasn't very smart. But now, after my cancer diagnosis... I've decided I'm always going to ask questions from now on and never assume I know the answer.. so here goes:
My FMLA will be over at the end of February and my HR person (who is kind of a jerk) has informed me that the company could legally fire me or reassign me when my FMLA is over. My family is on my insurance and not my husband's since mine was better. But if I get let go... would I be able to go on my husband's insurance? Or does my cancer now mean I have a non-covered preexisting condition? Or is it covered since I have had continuous coverage? Sorry I have never had to think about insurance and how this all works.
And I wanted to ask about any kind of supplemental insurance. I know... I know... who would insure us now?? But I have to ask, just in case... is there anyone who knows of any supplemental insurance that we can look into. I'm most concerned with long term care since my cancer is considered very aggressive and may return often.
Thank you all for any help you can give,
