I have a form of leukemia...that I think in some ways I am lucky to have compared to some.I was diagnosed...in May 2003..and Lori and I told I had 3 weeks to live. LOL. I am know 7 years later...under care for the last 4 years at the MAYO clinic in Jacksonville FL.
INsurance...YES! 3 of them. I will tell you nothing that I cannot substantiate. Some of it very unbelievable. UP until...2 years ago ,prior to Medicare <that's when I turned old enough to get it> Lori and I were Paying..9000$ a QUARTER...right!! 36000$ a year from United health.. for our policy for 2 people. I complained everywhere about it...including Florida Insurance Commish! big deal! This of coursse...did NOT...pay entirely for my care.!!! Example... I have had for last 5 years not much of an IMMUNE system remaining... SO.. every 4 weeks..I need a manmade one...Cost.. now 12,500$ PER month. this is totally in addition to my Leukemia CAre, or the care for the...side effects of some of the MEds used on me. Today I have...Medicare.. AARP PLan J <the best> and MAYO Employeee <Lori works in the laboratory there now. HOWEVER....these STILL do NOT cover totally my Healthcare costs....whcha last year exceeded 400 000$!!!CHOKE
