Tips For A Factor IX Who Travels For Work?
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have factor IX hemophilia. I graduate college on May 12th, 2017 and have a job which will put me on tour with a nationally touring band. What are some tips if you have any that could help? How to get more factor when I'm on the road, contacts I should have, how to get more equipment (needles, syringes, etc) if I need more, etc.
I only take factor on demand, so I don't run out quickly. Don't really see this being an issue, but any information and tips will be helpful.

Health Insurance
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I live in Michigan, and we have Childrens Special Health, that covers hospitalizations, factor, and supplies, with no cap.
I'm looking to moving somewhere possibly warmer in the future, and I'm curious about coverage in other states. I'm a very special, and severe case, and want to be sure I'll get the coverage that would keep me healthy.
If you care to share, that would be amazing.
