Pre-Existing Conditions: Time for a change?


It appears to me that pre-existing conditions is a stumbling block for everyone: Patients, doctors, insurance companies, Obamacare, etc.

Perhaps there should be a new approach for America. I’d like to see someone propose that genetic diseases are pre-existing conditions and the Federal and State governments will split the cost 50-50 for genetic disease treatment and management. Persons with a genetic disease register with State and Federal government and the patient/guardian is no longer responsible for the cost of healthcare for that genetic condition for the life of that patient.

In addition,all pregnancies greater than 60 days should be considered pre-existing conditions and accorded the same benefit of government-provided healthcare until a birth occurs.

So I’m thinking out loud on this. What do you think?
