Health Reform – Spousal Abuse Is A Preexisting Condition?!


Can it really be that insurers can deny payment for health care due to spousal abuse?

Seems so in eight states and the District of Columbia.

The seven states are Idaho, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming, as well as the District of Columbia.

Just in April 2009, Arkansas passed a law prohibiting insurance discrimination against domestic violence survivors.
