Re: Asset based or dividend based

Hey TH! I predict that insurance companies will in fact
"just say no" to smokers in the near future. However, I also predict new companies will crop up to specialize in covering smokers.
Denying smokers coverage is an easy call I think, but
as long as we have some semblance of free enterprise
in this country, someone will step in to fill the vacuum.
In fact, this is a hell of a good idea. Ah, if I was 20
years younger.........................

Re: Asset based or dividend based

I also wonder how long it will be before the health care companies say "enough. if you smoke we wont cover you at all, no matter how high a premium you pay".
IMHO, states will require health care companies to cover smokers. There is a conflict of interest built into the tobacco settlements. Lots of politicians have their eyes on that money, assuming that they have not spent those dollars already.

Have fun.
