In Topic: Celiac Testing And Insurance

I thrive to ask the questions that don't get asked. In pre-diagnosis or testing, a question that I might want to know is:

How is celiac going to affect my insurance?

Once it is confirmed that you do have celiac, has anyone had any significant increases in their premium?

A lot of people linger on the edge of "should I really get tested?" and one thing that I have seen come up with loved ones is "I don't know that I want to get tested and have my premiums increase next year if I do have celiac, perhaps I should go gluten free all by myself and not let the doctor confirm it". After all the pre-existing condition clause does not prohibit insurers from raising rates for higher risk patients.

My immediate concern is the other problems and allergies that occur with celiac should be confirmed so you know it is not another more serious problem.

What are your thoughts and experiences?



i would be cautious about Life insurance as well, get it before dx.  WELL before, so they can't come back on you for lying.

That is terrifying so how can I be sure that my son and I are not being CC are blood tests the way to go and who runs them the Gastros office is not interested in follow up blood tests?
The non-celiac's in the house are not willing to go gluten-free, I can't blame them but I have a lot of work to do I wish I could build myself a separate kitchen. lol
wow Brandiwine I also have speech issues a lot of symptoms I've had I blamed on Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
feeling overwhelmed

you know that saying,   "if mamma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy?"
