Keeping your insurance when you have cancer

The prospect of losing or changing one's job afer a cancer diagnosis is frightening for most people who depend on their employment to provide much needed medical coverage. COBRA is the law that allows employees, at their own expense, to continue their group health coverage for a specified period of time after their employment ends.

Getting insurance when you have a pre-existing condition of cancer

The provisions of the Affordable Care Act protect cancer survivors from being denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition of cancer. If you do not have coverage under a group or employer plan, visit MNSure or a private insurance agent to purchase an individual or family plan.
