Let me help you in on a little secret...... Cancer can be caused by much more than a three pack a day habit.<quoted text>
Your 6 K premium doesn't cover that. Everybody else in the insurance pool covers your cancer illness that could have been prevented if you hadn't smoked 3 packs a day your whole damn life and when there's not enough money in the insurance pool to cover those treatments for the number of insured drawing on it, guess what happens? Yup...the rules of what's covered and what isn't, change and suddenly grandma is offered a suicide pill instead of chemo because....well....it's cheaper.
What's your answer to the 13,000+ children that come down with some form of cancer each year?
Under the prior system, insurance companies simply waited for them to either reach adulthood to refuse coverage to them, or for them to hit the maximum ceiling to cut them off.
Fortunately, the ACA is going to make sure that the survivors won't be able to discriminate against them anymore.
