I’ve been on COBRA since I got laid off in January and had since applied to pay for my own insurance with Blue Cross Blue Shield.
I got rejected for my liver. I have a high count on the enzyme bilirubin – also known as Gilbert’s Syndrome – this is a completely bening liver condition and I’ve known about it for years and years. I hadn’t even had a liver profile done since I moved to Chicago. I tried to get copies of my previous liver tests but my old doctor in Indiana had trashed the records since it was more than 7 years old.
The best part: my COBRA is with Blue Cross Blue Shield.
