Just a question: do executive packages at health insurance corporations pay for pre-existing ...

conditions out of our uncovered premiums? Does the White House staff get coverage for pre-existing conditions? At what point will a genetic predisposition become a pre-existing condition. How do we find any of this out?

1. Federal Government health benefits cover pre-existing and all conditions,

and White House staff is covered by such, as they are government employees.

work for us, just the political hacks.

2. All the health insurance I've ever had from government

and large corporate employers never asked about pre-existing conditions.

5. I've always had Cadilac health insurence where I was asked about my history - especially ...

if my health care was through an HMO - but I never heard of pre-existing conditions before 2000, and then it was a matter of waiting six months or a year before they would cover it.

Now that those days are gone, thank goodness for the VA!

7. Ahh. That must be it. By 2000, I was

already retired for 12 years, so never heard of it.

3. Years ago they could be excluded

And insurance companies would love to go back to those days.

6. Most people could always get coverage for prexisting conditions. They just had to pay

a lot more ó in some cases, only the super wealthy could afford it.

Whatís different now is that super healthy people pay more than they would have to help cover people with pre-existing conditions. I and lots of people are OK with that because it protects us if we get sick. But, coverage does cause some folksí premiums to go up. And some folks canít fathom they might get sick.

White wingers are too stupid to get it, or just donít care about others.

8. Any corporate job I've had that offered health insurance...

Covers pre-existing conditions. It's mainly just people who have to buy it themselves that can't find a plan that isn't super expensive or can't get coverage.

9. We all need it, of course - I believe I've read that more than half of bankruptcies are ...

over medical bills. I do know that the percentage is increasing but its the working poor who are most likely to be without pre-existing condition coverage.
