Are you sure of that? My impression was that they could and the
reason is if they don't, they have to raise rates across the board
The last I heard they could charge the folks with higher risk up to
three times the lowest rate. So while they can't deny coverage based
on pre-existing conditions they can still set a price for coverage
that most people can't afford.
That seems to match what I have been hearing but i don't know if it's
accurate or not.
We won't know exactly what the final deal is until it comes up for a
Interestingly today I was on the phone helping one of our new company
hire guys. We were talking benefits and I pointed out specific ones
useful for retired Navy. The dental benefits are *much* cheaper than
the Navy has and they cap per year, not 'total cap allowed in
Once upon a time military retirement meant you were set for life, but
they've been chipping away at that for a long time now. We owe our
career military a better deal than what they're getting now, considering
how much we ask of them.
We expect the military to do too much with too little for too many.
