My husband and I have been very frustrated with the healthcare system. When the job he was working on ended and he lost his health insurance we searched for a new provider. Cost was not really a consideration, we just wanted to have him on health insurance. But he got turned down because he was on a medication for high blood preasure and had seen a chyropractor for a work related back problem. Because of these health "issues" he was denied coverage.
We felt punished for the fact that he had been proactive in taking care of himself. Had he not been seeing a doctor regularly and being proactive about his health, had we not known about his high blood preasure and therefore not had to report that issue on the application, he probably would have been accepted.
