If a child is diagnosed with Celiac Disease


Seeking Input – If a child is diagnosed with Celiac Disease, is there a problem with them being labeled with that condition and getting insurance later on in life? Should the condition be labeled differently to prevent future issues with getting insurance once they get older?

  1. Following

  2. I mean, I don’t think it really matters. it won’t affect insurance.

  3. Im not sure about the insurance. We had to have our daughter labeled with celiac to develop a 504 plan to keep her safe at school.

  4. I doubt it. There’s no medication or anything like that. My daughter & I were diagnosed almost 10 yrs ago and I think insurance paid something for it like twice – and that was for the initial testing & a follow up.

  5. We need to get a 504 for school as well.

    A local mom told me that a specialist at Vandy had told them it needed to be labeled as severe gluten allergy to prevent being denied insurance later on once they are on their own.

    We are new to this and need all the help we can get. I must say I am overwhelmed.

  6. With our daughter we had to provide medical documentation to her celiac in order to get the 504. I hope it does not effect her later in life for insurance. Navigating the insurance world is hard enough

  7. The 504 completely overwhelmed me but after six years and hiring lawyers I got this. Please let me know if you have questions. Not an expert but have been through a lot with the 504.

  8. I did not have an issue when I was on my own private insurance not through an employer or my parents. I was diagnosed around 1980 when I was 18 months old

  9. It’s considered a preexisting condition by a lot of insurance companies. If the laws change so could your coverage. It’s an autoimmune disease. This is why we chose not to seek a diagnosis for our other children

  10. I’m not sure what else you would label it as?

  11. Severe allergy to gluten ??
