Topic: any answers to this question?
Newly diagnosed, My dad doesnt have health coverage and has been in the process of trying to get it. He has applied for it but received a call today saying that it will take about 45 days for them to let him know if he qualifies, or not. My dad is stage 4, inoperable and was given a very poor prognosis. When I asked the doctor when someone like him would typically start chemo, he said now.
He has not started chemo...but is in the process of making the decision whether he wants to or not, he is leaning towards.
The insurance company said that because he is not over 65, under a certain age, or disabled, that he would have to wait. 45 days seems to long to wait when given a prognosis such as he's been given.
Does anyone know of anything i can do to hurry this up? If he wants to start chemo I want him to be able to.
