I don't receive health insurance through my employer—in fact, I don't receive any benefits at all, penicillin v 250 mg. Keflex 100 mg, I make good money and pay taxes, but because I chose to start my own small company, pen vk 250 mg, Keflex 750 mg dosage, I've placed myself at the mercy of the US healthcare system.

The United States is the only industrialized nation in the World that doesn't offer universal healthcare to its citizens, keflex 500mg dosage. Pen vee k 250 mg, Instead, we rely on an arcane collection of state-regulated insurance companies to provide coverage for the vast majority of Americans, keflex pulvules 500mg. Most get coverage through their employers; low income individuals and the elderly receive benefits through Medicaid and Medicare, and the rest of us are left to "shop around" for individual coverage, cephalexin 250mg capsules. Keflex 500 mg qid, Unlike group plans offered by employers, individual health insurance can be denied for almost any reason, pen vk 250. Amoxicillin 500 mg sinus infection, It is considerably more expensive, does not cover pre-existing conditions and does not fall under HIPPA laws put into place to make sure people between jobs don't lose benefits, keflex capsules 500mg. Keflex pulvules 500mg, Entrepreneurs and Innovators Are Left Behind

This means that many entrepreneurs and innovators—those of us paving the way on our own—are left with costly insurance or no insurance at all. Because of the limited choices for affordable healthcare, the decision to become an entrepreneur looks increasingly less attractive, keflex 100 mg. Keflex 500 mg dosage, Even if an individual is to secure an individual policy, the rates will be higher, keflex 750 mg dosage, Keflex 500mg dosage, and the coverage will be less than policies available through an employer.

My Personal Struggles With Entrepreneurship and Health Insurance Cephalexin 250mg capsules, About three years ago I had a cyst removed from my jaw. It was a fairly standard procedure, penicillin v 250 mg, Pen vk 250, much like having wisdom teeth pulled, until my doctor received the pathology report, cephalexin 500 mg for dogs. Amoxicillin 500 mg sinus infection, I had an Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC), an aggressive, keflex 500 mg qid, Pen vk 250 mg,  benign tumor in the jaw that has a high propensity to return (about 30 - 50%). Since then, pen vee k 250 mg, Keflex 500 mg dosage, I've had similar procedures to remove the reoccurring cyst two other times with the most recent (in January of 2009) finally producing a clear pathology report. Of the three surgeries, one was covered by my graduate assistant insurance, and the other two were paid for out-of-pocket, totaling about $3000—expensive, but less than many deductibles.

When my graduate health insurance ran out in November 2008, I purchased a short term policy to get me through a few months while I decided whether to build my small company or go look for a full-time job, cephalexin 250mg capsules. I decided to become my own boss, and I started looking for health insurance while I began to build clients. I knew that most plans probably wouldn't cover any problems that arose from the jaw cyst, but I never thought it would be cause for denial.

The first company I looked at was Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. They are well established and their plans are accepted all over the Chicago area. Cephalexin 250mg capsules, I completed a rather lengthy application, fully disclosing the cyst, paid two months worth of premiums ($350) and waited for a response. About two weeks later I was notified that they needed more information and scheduled a phone interview to discuss the OKC. I gave them all the information requested over the phone and assumed I was that much closer to having health insurance.

I was wrong.

After another ten days or so, I received an email saying that BCBS could not offer me coverage due to information provided during my phone interview. I had been denied, cephalexin 250mg capsules. A letter that came a few days later confirmed the fact that they were not going to issue me insurance because of my cyst that was now gone. Even worse was the fact that I now had to answer "yes" to the ubiquitous application question: "Have you ever been denied coverage in the past?"

Black-Listed

This question essentially black-lists me, making it next to impossible to find affordable individual coverage. My last option is the Illinois high-risk pool, or ICHIP, that offers coverage to individuals who are willing to pay, but who are not insurable through individual plans. If that doesn't work I may be forced to put my company on the back burner and look for a full time position with health benefits (or convince my current girlfriend to make a trip to Vegas).

I have to wonder how many potential entrepreneurs have forgone their plans to forge their own paths for the benefit of health insurance.
