Author, MS Sufferer Talks About Health Insurance

Acquiring health insurance is simple. All that you have to do is apply. Their enlies the problem. Like me, if you have MS you have probably had the experience of being denied or offered an astronomically high premium rate making the acquisition financially impossible.

Back in 1983 when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, that was my reality... not the dinosaurs the inability to get insurance. After several years of applying and being turned down reminiscent of the process of trying to acquire Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), I managed to acquire health insurance through the state of Massachusetts. I was covered under a program called Mass Health.
If you are getting nowhere with your quest for health insurance, I would suggest contacting the National MS Society or your states society. If by chance you run into a problem. I have provided a link below, which I believe you will find quite helpful.
If you do not have health insurance, I have some good news. According to the Foundation for Health Coverage Education. (FHCE), one in three uninsured qualify for coverage.

The interview below with Akeny Minoux from (FHCE) points out how the Foundation is a one-stop shop to help you understand all the programs that are available to you and which ones you qualify for.

Go to:
The Disability Digest for further information.

Don't lose hope! You could be just days away from being properly insured.
