I'm being let go by my megacorp...was trying to hang on until retirement age where I would have access to group insurance, not to be
So I had cancer treatment in 2009 and declared cancer free in 2010. I'm checking with insurance agent about getting individual health insurance, all but 1 rejected me without even an application, except for Aetna, questions:
- I thought Obamacare was going to fix this, or will that happen in 2014?
- If I'm declined by Aetna, I'll go Cobra route for 18 months but that will leave me a few months short of 2014, what will be my options then?
- If declined, would it be worth reapplying at end of COBRA period, or am I permanently blackballed?
