Hi ladies,

I got diagnosed (finally!!) with having hypothyroidism yesterday ... I've known for a long, long time that something was "wrong" with me and thank the Lord they finally figured it out.

Right now, my husband is active duty military and we obviously are 100% covered by insurance, including the cost of meds and seeing endocrinologists and whatever else I need. We are not planning on staying in the military, however, because it just isn't for our family (I don't deal well with the lifestyle) ... So my husband is getting out in about 8 months and now with this new diagnosis, we are both kind of freaking out about me being covered by insurance - DH is hoping to get a job with the local police or sheriff's department and they do offer health insurance ... but!

My question is this ... Have any of you guys been denied medical coverage because of your thyroid disorder?



And, for those of you who do NOT have health insurance, how much do you pay out of pocket for your meds??

Nice to finally have an answer for why you feel bad, huh? No, I've never had a problem with insurance. Thyroid meds are so cheap without insurance, that it won't make a huge difference. What meds and dose do they have you on? Originally when I was diagnosed, I went on Synthroid, then Levox for a few year combined and they did NOTHING for me. I felt terrible all time. It wasn't until I went on a T3/T4 combo pill, did I start to feel good.
