I’m a final year student finishing my master’s degree in India. I was diagnosed with RA in Dec 2014. It was very difficult in the beginning especially because my diagnosis coincided with a semester of advanced Immunology, so I knew too well what was going on inside me. While my exhaustive forays into investigating RA online, I can across this page and have been an avid follower since then.
At present I’m on Methotrexate and doing quite okay. I am considering a grad school offer from US, and naturally I have some apprehensions about managing my RA in a far off land. But the only things I know about the healthcare system in US are from TV shows and Robin Cook thrillers. So I’d appreciate any tips/suggestions/advice you might have (about insurance, doctors and other associated issues), which might make it easy for me to take a decision of whether to move or not.
