Multiple Myeloma Insurance Questionnaire: Ask Before You Buy

Are you shopping for health insurance this fall? If you don't have health insurance, you may be eligible to enroll in your state's new health insurance marketplace starting October 1. To help you compare plans, the IMF Advocacy team has created a Multiple Myeloma Insurance Questionnaire, a list of questions to consider when choosing a plan to get the most coverage for myeloma patients' critical needs. We also worked with 19 cancer and advocacy organizations to create the Cancer Insurance Checklist, which is a general cancer patient decision tool to use when shopping for insurance plans in the new health insurance marketplaces.
