What is wrong with all the insurance companies? Why do they refuse to insure children and others nationwide? Here are two situations where the insurance companies might have made a wrong choice in denying health insurance.
1. A 4 month old infant boy who weighs 17 pounds has been denied health insurance for being to heavy. He is heavier then what the projected percentile is for his age.
2. A 2 year old toddler girl who weighs 22 pounds has been denied health insurance for being to small. She is considered underweight according to the projected percentile for her age.
Both of these children have been to regular visits with their doctor’s and the doctor’s have found that they are healthy and there is no problems of any kind that they can see or expect to see. Still the health insurance companies are not satisfied and will not cover these children.
This infant and toddler should be allowed to have the health insurance they need so that they can continue to stay healthy and happy.
Health insurance companies really need to go over their policies and procedures, and try to come up with a way to insure these children as well as everyone else that is denied insurance for unacceptable reasons.
It seems that the insurance companies don’t really believe what the doctor’s tell them. How many people have been denied insurance after their doctor’s have gave them a clean bill of health. There has been many. The insurance companies always have what they think are good excuses for denying health coverage. Most of the time their excuses are unacceptable.
When will the insurance companies start looking at the need for health insurance. When will they realize that helping people get on health insurance will get them to the doctor more often, which will help catch and prevent any serious illness.
People are becoming more afraid to go to the doctor because they don’t have health insurance to help cover the cost. This is only making matters worse because treatable illnesses are going undetected and untreated, which is only going to spread illnesses instead of preventing it.
Health insurance companies should be made to cover everyone in some way or another. If children or adults are healthy and have been healthy prior to applying for coverage, then they should be allowed to get insured. It also shouldn’t matter what the weight and height of children and adults are either.
Everyone should be treated equal regardless of what their health situations are, and this is not the case. The insurance companies seem to be in control of our health instead of us being in control of it.
