Preparing for Open Enrollment: Types of Health Insurance

Getting the best health coverage available is critical for people with bleeding disorders. If you have a bleeding disorder, you must have health insurance coverage. Managing a bleeding disorder costs a lot, so you need to know the ins and outs of your policy—what it does, and doesn’t, cover.
