Any Problems With Insurance Company After Being Diagnosed?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wondering! I've fallen off the wagon and have been eating a small amount of foods with gluten everyday(I know I know) and figured since I"m doing that I may as well get tested but won't if it's possible I could get dropped from my insurance...any experiences??

also, I am confused. why would a kid test negative for celiac but test positive for a wheat allergy?

I think it depends on what kind of insurance you have. If it's a employer provided plan at a decent size company then no they can't drop you. If it's an individual policy then I'm not sure. I know a few years ago (4 or 5) when I was shopping for individual coverage celiac was an uninsurable condition. But, that was a few years ago and I'm not sure if the laws have changed regarding invididual polices. It also may vary by state.

To answer your second question, an allergy is an allergy while celiac is a genetic autoimmune disease. Many people have wheat allergies that don't have celiac.
