Just wanted to pass along the official list of pre-existing conditions used by the insurance carriers (I almost typed Unsurance carriers, Ha!!). This comes via Moveon.
An email from them includes this paragraph:
Here is a list of some of the most common pre-existing conditions that could skyrocket insurance costs under Trumpcare. Click to sign the petition if you or anyone you know is on this list.
alcohol or drug abuse with recent treatment,
congestive heart failure,
kidney disease/renal failure,
mental health issues,
seasonal affective disorder,
"sexual deviation or disorder,"
and that's not all.2,3
