What is an affordable insurance?

Thu, 09/13/2018 - 12:14
Hi everyone! So I’m about to move to the U.S. and am losing my health insurance in my country. I will need to get my own health insurance in New Jersey (I don’t have a job that will cover anything). I hear that it’s difficult to get insurance because I have a pre-existing condition (epilepsy since age 17, now 29) and that the monthly price is through the roof! I wanted to check if anyone knows any companies that offer insurance that can give you the occasional appt with a neurologist and monthly medication without making you bankrupt? Thank you :)
