On How to Get Health Care While Uninsured

I'll make this long story short. I am almost 65 years old. At 31 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I had insurance, got great care & alot of treatment in NYC where Ilived at the time. Eventually I moved to FL in my 40;s because my Mother lived here & wasnt well. I moved here with the promise that Empire BC & BS would keep me on an individual policy ( which would raise yearly. I accepted those terms. No sooner did I unpack when Patake became gov of ny & allowed empire to drop all out of state residents. I was uninsurable & self employed. Somehow I managed to put together an insurance portfolio consisting of 3 companies & the cost was 21 thousand a year in premiums. If I type what I wish this govt for abandoning me God would punish me, so I will resist. I paid those premiums for TWENTY ONE years, until an unrelated surgery disabled me making me eligible for medicare & disability at 63 years old. I will never forgive the medical profession, our politicians who didnt give a damn & the punishment I received JUST because I had had cancer which is the worst pre existing condition one can have. Now they are noticing that people shouldnt be turned down. NOW they are noticing that people like me held 3 jobs to feed my kids. MY adulthood was ruined by them. May future generation have beter luck. Amen
