Children Denied Insurance for Being “Too Fat” or “Too Skinny”
Recently, an insurance company called Rocky Mountain Health in Colorado denied a four-month-old baby insurance because he was obese, which the insurance company claimed was a preexisting condition. You can read more about it below.
And just when I thought that was icing on the cake, I read THIS article: Toddler Denied Health Insurance for Being Too Small.
What’s up with health insurance denying coverage to children due to their weight? For God’s sake, they are CHILDREN! How can a CHILD being “too fat” or “too small” possibly be a pre-existing condition? Me personally, I think it’s ludicrous and such insurance companies should be penalized and fined. ALL children should be allowed to have health insurance, regardless of weight!
