In brief: None

The reason that insurance exists is to spread the risk of any single person having any disease is divided among many healthy people with no disease.
Our current system is prejudiced against anybody with a "pre-existing" illness such as yours and makes you pay extra.Makes getting insurance(or keeping it ) tough.It is a lose-lose;dr and patient, win for insurance company.My gripe with aca.
