Yeah this sucks - I've heard similar from other people and I'm afraid you're right that once you're diagnosed with a condition most or maybe even all of the insurance companies won't give you a policy because you're deemed too expensive to take on. Its really a horrible system. Still I wonder if there are options for you.

I would hope that there were insurance plans that would take you on, or maybe some state program that would help you find affordable insurance. In NYC we have"the freelancers union" which gives group insurance rates to people working for themselves or small business like you. I wonder if there's kind of support like that out by you. I even heard from someone in PA that he'd gotten good group insurance rates through his local chamber of commerce - they had a group plan for local business owners. Worth checking into if there's anything on the local level government or otherwise that could help you....
