Hi all, I’m curious if anyone has some good info on how to go about getting the best health insurance and financial planning for melanoma patients. Last year I was let go from my company so I’m currently on cobra (they were great to me over the years and especially since diagnosis and recent years). However cobra will run out at the end of this year. I’ve had excellent coverage but I fear I’ll lose this, and especially extent of coverage. Another fear is if I move over to Medicare that my expenses would increase dramatically (I’m stage 4 and also have some disability from brain surgery so I think medicare is a viable option). For example, if I’m on Medicare and an 80/20 plan, and next years bills are 200k, will I be responsible of 40k? I don’t want to burn my savings just to pay bills. I want to preserve my assets in the best possible way I can.
Just turned 35, single, and don’t own my home. I’m a little nervous about exposing myself in the future. Any insight with medical insurance and financial planning?
