This post is dedicated to all of my friends who have had serious health problems in the last year.
Ever been denied health care because of a pre-existing condition? No? Just wait. Sooner or later we all develop one. It’s called “being alive”. Health insurance companies don’t care. They will gladly reject you on the basis that you are not healthy enough to qualify for health insurance. Sensible, huh?
One group that’s working to change things is Families USA. They have a nice new web site called Stand Up for Health Care
that features lots of good information about the health care crisis and what you can do to help fix it. Please take a minute to check it out.
(The above post does not apply if you live in Europe, Canada or any of the other places in the world where people have guaranteed access to good health care.)
