This is crazy.

Effective as soon as the healthcare bill was signed- Prohibition on revoking insurance for patients who falsify applications to fraudulently obtain private insurance coverage( however penalties for fraud against federal health programs are increased)

Personally, I wouldn't want that person on my insurance plan. I thought they were going to try and stop fraud. So they don't put these people in jail they just fine them and let them keep the insurance? Really I think they should go to jail and have government jail cell coverage. Wonder what the fine is.

  • Interesting, Steph. So fraud is now allowed on health insurance applications. It figures.

    What other interesting facts will emerge in the coming months?

  • I'm just glad Texas is suing...with 15 other states. Maybe we can get this thing thrown out and start over with a brand-new set of minds. (In other words...don't vote incumbent!)

  • What happened to that bit about getting rid of the fraud, waste, and abuse? Or is that only for certain people? I am beginning to think that they WANT people to lie, cheat, steal, etc. They don't seem to punish anyone who steals or cheats......at least if they have a D behind their name.

  • Considering they probably falsified information because they had a condition which would inhibit them from obtaining insurance, I think it's just fine.
