Having insurance when you are dealing with symptoms of colits is SO very important. I can honestly say that my family would have probably gone bankrupt had I not had health insurance during the months after I was diagnosed. There were so many medical costs associated with my UC, that the numbers would have been too much for us to handle.
If you are also wondering about health insurance because you either have UC or think you have UC, I suggest you review some of these offers that exist for online health insurance.
Most of the time, you will get a response within 1 day if you are approved for the insurance, and that is very fast. There is no reason to wait around for something like this.
