Reason #872 Why Health Insurance Needs Reform
Huffington Post recently posted this article about how health insurance companies are denying coverage to victims of sexual assault. Apparently taking care of yourself after being violated is enough to make you uninsurable in the future because of your "pre-existing condition" called rape (or sexual assault). I mean really, what a slap to the face. Not only are you dealing with something that could be very tragic for you personally, but now you have another major worry to think about in your life. Oh yes, and why do we care again if healthcare reform will put the insurance companies out of business? That's right, I don't. They've had their chance, they blew it up. Too bad, so sad (not really).
