Insurance and pre exisitng conditions
      #2828 - 04/05/00 01:44 PM

can someone please tell me how you go about getting a job with insurance and taking advantage of the 1996 law clinton passed that no one can be denied insurance or have a pre existing condition clause put on them if they have had credible insurance for at least one year.

i mean, do you just get the job, get the insurance and on the sign up form say what you've got? or do you just start going to a doctor and then sending in the claim forms.

by the way, this is florida i am referring to.

need help urgently!

thanks

don't know about Fl but overall it's like this ( sort of )..... if you have any kind of insurance NOW and have been diagnossed with HIV and are being treated for HIV ( or any thing else pre existing ) and get a job with insurance, the employers insurance company may ask you about pre-existing conditions. If they do, you MUST tell the truth. They will ask for prof of previous insurance and then should cover your "pre-existing diagnosis". Do not stop paying on your present policy until you are certian that the employer's insurance co will cover you!!!!

Befor you do anything call the Florida State AIDS hotline to check on Florida law (800) 352-AIDS . The Body also has a section where there are lots of insurance questions.http://www.thebody.com/cgi/workans.html
