Hi, josefina,

I am sorry to hear about your kidney stones. My uncle experienced this , so I know how painful it is.

1. Please tell me what question I can Answer for you

2. Also, if you are still with the same employer, why don't you have the same health insurance that you had before ? I ask this because COBRA benefits are usually for those employees who no longer wok for their employer. What type of health insurance did you have when you were hospitalized with your first kidney stone ?

Thank you,
