Hello everyone. Big hugs and warm wishes coming your way.
I've been researching and haven't come up with much so
I thought I'd toss it out here for responses.
I am not able to return to work yet and though my company has
been more generous than most (my insurance at the employee price
was extended a year past the date my disability started), I will
be looking at paying COBRA in about 5-6 months. As you all know,
this is expensive (going to be about the same as my mortgage).
Are any of you aware of any programs, etc. that provide assistance
to someone in making their COBRA premiums? My research brings up
plenty of links to the government assitance that was provided to
people who lost their jobs, etc. in 2010. Though that was extended,
it's not available now to my knowledge.
I did discuss with my social worker and he suggested I talk with the
financial services group at the cancer center which I haven't done yet.
I won't be eligible for Medicare, etc until Sep 2013 should I still be
unable to work.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
Hugs and positive thoughts,
DX: DLBL 4/2011, Chemo completed 10/2011, currently in remission. :)
