Get this. After turning down my application for health insurance last year due to pre-existing conditions, today they sent me a letter that reads, and I quote:
"Dear Nicole Cox,
Thank you for contacting Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield about individual health coverage options. We haven't heard back from you, and I'm concerned. With the rising cost of medical care today, it's important that you have the right health care plan."
Seriously?! Of all the nerve! Insert humorless, hysterical laughter here. Oh, the things I could say. I'm thinking of calling and giving them a piece of my mind. I will say, though, that this is why I'm in support of universal health care and/or health care reform. At it currently stands, the reforms that would allow me to get insurance don't even come into effect until 2014.
