I am just wondering what health insurance options are open to people with Lupus in the United States (since we are probably one of the only civilized countries in the world without universal health coverage). I am currently on Cobra through my previous employer. My husband is selfemployed and makes a comfortable living. I am afraid that when the Cobra runs out that we will not be able to get insurance because of me. I worry that he will have to divorce me so I can get medicaid. I do not think I would qualify for disability. Does anyone out there know of any resources for health insurance for people with chronic illnesses like lupus?
