Have you contacted your state insurance commisioner ? You are being discrimated against. Maybe it is your race ? Maybe it’s your religion ! Maybe it’s your sex – MAYBE YOU CAN GIVE THE INSURANCE COMPANIES MORE TROUBLE THEN THEY WOULD LIKE 😡 I’ll bet they would just love the free advertising you could do for them:D Have you contacted your local TV stations ? Many stations have a crew or department just looking for a company nose to bloody. Fight man fight ! DO NOT take this laying down – FIGHT 🙂

It is difficult enough to get health insurance on your own nowadays if one is young & healthy, let alone if one has had a catastrophic illness. One of the major problems of GBS is that so little is known about it, especially by insurance underwriters. My husband (who has no healthy issues), just went through the process of getting life insurance & it took almost 5 months. The holdup; the fact that his father died of a heart attack at age 65. They didn’t consider that his father was overweight most of his life & had also been a smoker all of his life. My husband’s weight is perfect & he has never smoked.
I don’t think they are worried so much about him getting GBS again, they are wondering what unknown residuals it might cause down the road. There may be none, there might be many, but they are afraid of the unknown. Try various companies, one might come through for you.
I know that I could have been given the WRONG information, so I am going to get a prescription from my doctor that a power chair/scooter is MEDICALLY NECESSARY, submit it and see what happens. I may call medicare and ask them to confirm/deny what I was told.
