I have this "fear". *I'll work hard for X years to reach ER and then I go to get health insurance and the underwriting department says, "Sure, we'll give you an individual plan, but I'm sorry all we can cover Mr. Whisper is your spleen, lower jaw and left knee. *But I think you'll be pleased with how reasonable our rates are..." *
I got that impression from the previous thread: *it sounds like most states allow vigorous underwriting so that different body parts and systems can be exluded? *Is there any solution at this time short of moving? *COBRA will only last so long you know and, from what I can tell, HSA's aren't quite here yet...
