    Pre-Existing Health "Conditions" -- Cops, Firefighters, Expectant Dads, and Those Suffering From Allergies, Acne and Toenail Fungus Are Uninsurable According To Internal Documents - Consumer Watchdog

    Added to the list are also Cops, Firefighters, Expectant Dads, and people with Acne. Really, not only those first three but ACNE? :eusa_eh:

    How unAmerican too considering Cops and Firefighters are rejected. So much for being "heroes" I suppose to the insurance companies.

    And here's the other kicker on the list: And "Symptoms" for which physician was not consulted.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    That will guarantee higher profits for the insurance companies, which should make cons and lobbyists very happy.

    when UHC is finally passed in whatever form it will be, the health insurance companies will have no one to blame but themselves.

    i think its a political ploy. if the votes for whatever the final version is ends up 99% Democrats, and it flops by the next election, then there is no chance obama will be re-elected. struggling to get Rs on board now just lets the dems paint Rs as obstructionists while still getting the bill passed in the end, probably with some minor compromise to even the ratio of Rs to Ds on the final vote.

    I don't think the votes are there for the public option.

    If coverage is not flat-out denied, the insurer will add amendments refusing to cover anything related to what they deem a pre-existing condition.

    If I lose my job, I'm fucked. I won't be able to get insurance.
