My question is about health insurance after being dx with OVCA. We live and work in NY state. My husband has health insurance through work and covers me. I want him to quit his job, but friends warn me about switching insurance companies with a "pre-existing" condition.

Has anyone had to switch? If so, did you lose coverage for cancer check-ups and/or treatments?
