f'ck the fine print...

It's official, insurance company executives are spawn of the devil. According to today's New York Times, lawyers for the insurance companies are now arguing that language in the new Health Care Bill is open to interpretation. And while the bill now requires them to pay the expenses generated from a child's pre-existing conditions if the child is already covered by their parent's policy, it DOES NOT require them sell new policies to children with pre-existing conditions.


So essentially, if they find out that your child has a pre-existing condition before they offer coverage, they can charge you a more expensive penalty fee or simply refuse to cover your child at all. And the 'availability' coverage that requires that everyone receive insurance doesn't go into effect until 2014.


I. Can't. How the hell do these people sleep at night?


  1. yeah that is some straight up BS. I hope the Obama white house ammends the legistation like the did last week.

  2. How do they sleep---with a comforter made of all our hard earned money. *smh*
