Broken and Corrupt System no one wants to talk about (http://www.mcclatchydc.com/330/story/65010.html)


It's especially timely because growing numbers are looking for individual health insurance after losing their jobs. On top of that, small businesses, which make up the bulk of South Florida's economy, are frequently finding health policies too expensive and are dropping coverage, sending even more people shopping for insurance.

The problem is, material available on the Web shows that people who have specific illnesses or use certain drugs can't buy coverage.

Anyone unwilling to even talk about a solution doesn't understand the problem.

Not breaking news.

Not secret.

Its been well known for a long time that some insurance companies will blacklist those with a host of problems. Its done in the name of cutting risk, and potential loss. But in the same note, not all do, but they ether will classify it as a pre-condition, and won't cover the cost, or charge a higher premium.
