I was wondering if any one knows what will really happen in January for those of us who live in the US.
The preexisting condition mandate is supposed to go into effect, Jan 1, 2013.
SO What I understand is that we can all apply for insurance and get the same rates as anyone else.
Something in me is telling me that something is going to undermine this or it will be changed in the 11th hour.
Does anyone know more about this and what we might expect?
Right now I buy insurance from a California state run pre existing condition fund. It costs more and offers less than standard insurance, but I am glad I have it. Other diabetics in other states are not as fortunate.
( side note : to toot my own horn, I got my labs back yesterday and I had a 5.6% A1c. and it said NORMAL RANGE!!!!!. ) That's a first for me.
