Need Health Insurance?
CNN has a nice article that outlines some practical tips to help you get health insurance if you have a pre-existing medical condition. In a nutshell, they are:
1. Become a group of one.
2. If you've been laid off, get COBRA.
3. When you lose your employer-related insurance, apply for new insurance within 63 days.
4. Find out whether your state has a high-risk pool.
5. See whether your professional organization offers group insurance.
I encourage you to read the article because it goes into more depth explaining each of these points. Finally, if you're unemployed and you take medications made by Pfizer, remember: Pfizer Offers Free Drugs to Unemployed, Uninsured
