As for "insurers like to get rid of people who are actually expensively sick." they like to, but as long as you continue coverage they cant (say ... have job, get laid off, carry cobra for a year, get another job or wife gets job with insurance ... as long as no break in coverage, they cant refuse coverage .... believe you can even carry garbage insurance and then bounce back up when employer insurance becomes available again)

So they say. I was refused coverage by 3 different insurance cos for individual insurance in 2011 after finishing a contract job that provided insurance.

And I've never had a major medical problem and have no history of anything!

Insurance companies are crazy. I guess if I had an immediate need for the coverage then whatever long expensive process of appeal or lawsuit would have been worth it.
