Roy,Thank you for your kind words about my post in the Sally Satel thread.I will take a look at the links you mentioned as I wasn't even aware that eliminating pre-existing conditions was up for consideration. It looks like I need to get busy. Thank you for providing them.AA
Oh, does this bring back the days I worked at a health ins. company, processing the files that came out of the weekly Underwriting Committee, the "RED Files", the ones that were Suspensions or Rescissions or needed a Rider on them for specific health conditions, because of pre-existing or the extreme-high cost or whatever.This is quite some time ago that I worked there, I haven't been able to work in a long time.I cringed for the poor people that those files represented. I also wondered how the physician that was on the committee could hold his head up, especially with the "do no harm" part of his medical oath.
