I got a big fat letter in the mail today from my current healthcare provider. I am in the process of starting a new position and wanted to keep the insurance I have. So, I applied to my current provider, just as an individual instead of under a group plan. I told them everything I could think of that I have dealth with medically. I thought I would be fine. They already cover me. Why wouldn’t they cover me now?
Sorry, but you’re too fat. That was the verdict, said in nicer words. It doesn’t matter that I’m in great health, blood pressure normal, no problems to speak of. I’m fat, so they won’t accept me, even though they have had me for the past 1 1/2 years. Pissed can’t even begin to describe how I feel.
I have been with this company since I was a child. My mother had this company and I received coverage until I was out of college. I was accepted by my current job’s plan after two years without insurance. Thankfully, their healthcare was with the same provider. But now, I am going to be without again.
Count me among the 41 million. I have just been fucked over by the health insurance industry.
