Health Care: Pre-existing conditions

Editor’s note: There is little debate that in any health reform we must find a way to alleviate the issue of denials based on pre-existing conditions. However, there needs to be a healthy dose of individual responsibility added to any formula. Responsibility on two fronts. First to maintain health insurance on a continuous basis. People can not opt out when they are well and expect to opt in when they are not. Therefore the laws must allow people to acquire insurance, but almost must ensure that they maintain continuous coverage.

A new report from HHS concludes that the current health insurance system rejected 12.6 million non-elderly adults, or 36% of those who attempted to buy health coverage, during the past year.
