Anyone catch it?


I was thinking about the Hyde Ammendment thread - how one poster in particular took a rather gleeful delight in the suffering of the woman whose abortion wouldn't be covered by her insurance...if she had just read her policy, she'd have known.


Made me wonder - in the case on the show last night, would that poster have defended the insurance company so vehemenlty?


The situation was, the fetus had a heart defect and required in vitro surgery to correct it to prevet its death. They had until 24 weeks gestation to make the repair.


Insurance company didn't want to cover the surgery.



The problem with winter sports is that – follow me closely here – they generally take place in winter.

How about someone who campaigns for the end of welfare but works at a shelter? It could be contradictory, but it really isn't.

I think there's a big difference between reading the policy and memorizing it. I read my policy, every single word of it. But I don't always remember exactly how everything is covered. And besides, there's TONS of ambiguity in it. In my current policy, it says that all maternity care has a single charge of $150. But as it turned out, that was just the copay for the hospital stay, and I still had to pay $20 out of pocket for each appt and sometimes more for testing.

I did see it.


I hadn't thought about that aspect of it ... I try to block that thread from my consciousness ;) but truly, who on earth reads every word of their policies and knows exactly what things are covered?
