is there anyone out there that will cover me?


#1

Hello,

I had a heart attack on saturday morning. Needed to be rescucitated twice (1st time took 'em two goes on the paddles with cpr in-between, 2nd time I came straight back) then I had to have an angioplasty(?) to insert a stent into the artery.
As you can probably tell, I have made a good recovery (I’m typing this from home) but when can I think about skiing?
I have a week booked last week of Jan. I need to inform my current insurer that I have had the attack, and they will probably cancel my policy - is there anyone out there that will cover me?

Please help.

I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.

Your State Health Insurance Commissioner agency might help you: Find your state insurance commissioner agency here: https://www.naic.org/state_web_map.htm

The hospital social services department will help you. Would you telephone the hospital and ask for your call to be transferred to the social services department for resources?

Another suggestion: your attending physician can order a social services consult from a local hospital or from a home health care agency or long term care local agency. Your long-term care ombudsman agency might provide resources about your health insurance question: https://www.acl.gov/programs/protecting-rights-and-preventing-abuse

Excuse me for being too old to know, but isn’t it still illegal to cancel a policy or deny coverage due to illness and pre-existings? Has the ACA truly been gutted that much for folks not yet on Medicare?
