  •  Why should people be denied all insurance (2+ / 0-)

    just because their PEC may be only one health issue?  For instance, if their PEC is a bad knee, why should they be denied insurance for other health matters having nothing to do with the knee?   Or if a woman has arthritis, why should she be denied insurance for OB-GYN issues?

    •  Good point, and I don't know the answer. I don't (0+ / 0-)

      know if they could legally do that, but if they could, I think they would for an otherwise low risk individual.

      On the other hand they would use it as an excuse to deny insurance to someone who, although they had no other pre-existing conditions, would be in a less desirable demographic at higher risk for unrelated conditions.

      But the bottom line is, as I said, I'm opposed to private health insurance as the basis for "universal" healthcare, so in MY system, they wouldn't be denying coverage, because they wouldn't be there.
