RE: [IP] Insurance troubles

Hi there, 

I seem to have a serious problem with my insurance. I
currently have Anthem BC/BS of NV. Well, I have been
living in CA for the past year because of my husbands
job. Anthem of NV is canceling my policy as of
12/31/04. I am trying to get a "conversion plan" with
Blue Shield of CA, which will be more expensive if I
can even do it. I have tried to call other insurance
plans and they told me that insulin dependant
diabetics are automatically denied! The people who
need it the most, can't get it. That makes no sense to

Does anybody now of an insurance plan I can call that

son and I am perfectly healthy, except having
diabetes. This whole situation makes me very sad. I am
open for any suggestions. Thank you.
