Hi I'm Jake,
In 1997 I received a kidney and liver transplant at Stanford, I was only a year old when i got my double transplant and because of my age and weight no hospital in Canada would preform my surgery. There was an auction and Stanford won, I've lived my life in Canada and benefited from the health care here immensely in the past 20 years post transplant with thankfully no big rejections or any liver issue at all.
My situation has changed recently however as I've been dating a girl from America for awhile now, we see a life together but I've been unable to find any resources online that have been useful to me regarding health care in america for chronically ill and more importantly for transplants, that was until I found this site and thought it might be a good idea to ask fellow transplant recipients or family members of those recipients my questions.
My questions are:
1. Are there any specific health insurances that cater to the chronically ill and people on alot of medication.
2. If anyone has tips or experience they would like to share regarding the american healthcare system or immigration to america that would be immensely appreciated.
I'm in the dark when it comes to this and im not sure where to start, I'd be moving to Colorado if that makes any difference, I know many people will not advise me to move but im assessing all my options before I make any life changing decisions.
Thank you for taking your time to read this and thank you so much to the people who respond.
