The Costs of Living With Hemophilia

Clotting factors are costly, and many health insurance companies will only pay for them on a case-by-case basis. It is important to know:
  • What your insurance covers
  • If your insurance has a "cap" on the dollar amount that it will cover and what that amount is
  • If there are restrictions or waiting periods.
As children grow, it is important to learn about the different available options for insurance. Career counseling can help you or your child find a job and keep health insurance coverage.

Education and Job Training

If you are living with hemophilia, it is important that you complete your education. Getting a good education and advanced job training "opens the door" to the kinds of jobs that are ideal for those who cannot do hard physical work.
