How health insurers secretly blacklist those with certain ailments

How health insurers secretly blacklist those with certain ailments.

I’ve heard on different message boards that having an Ehlers Danlos diagnosis renders a person uninsurable. Is that true?

If I lost my job I would lose my health insurance. Would I ever be able to get health insurance again? (I guess I could apply for SSDI.)

    Hi there. There are a few options – the key is to keep up whatever insurance you have until you either get a new job, can be covered under someone els’es plan, or qualify for SSDI and medicare. If there is no lapse in coverage, group health care plans cannot deny you coverage or exclude pre-existing conditions.if there is a lapse in coverage they can exclude pre-existing conditions for up to 12 monthsPortability Health Insurancehttp://www.dol.gov/ebsa/newsroom/fshipaa.html
