Q: insurance for RA people

I am 62, have had RA for about 6 years.  It is well under control with methotrexate and Enbril.

I am going to retire soon and will be elligible for COBRA for a while. 

Are there Health plans that will take someone with RA?

I live in Oregon and they have a high risk pool insurance plan that is pretty pricey but I wonder if there are options.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about insurance, but I can refer you to a couple of posts we have, what to do when you don't have insurance (just in case) and the other about the various funding programs available for RA meds.

 

I'd also recommend that you try asking your question again in a SharePost - they often get more traffic than the individual questions in the Q&A section, so there's a better chance that someone in our community will see it and be able to answer.
