Question: I recently applied and was declined for a condition that I have had for over 10 years and that no underlying cause has been found. When the condition does occur, which could happen once or twice in a year or not at all, the prescription used is of minimal cost. Should I appeal the decline?
Question: My husband and I are self-employed and need to purchase insurance. We applied to Unicare and while he was accepted, I was denied due to my "build" (their term). I have no history of high blood pressure or any other health issues often assumed to be linked to a bigger "build." In fact, I lead a healthy lifestyle, walking several miles everyday.
What is my best next step? Shall I apply to another company and simply fudge my height/weight? 10lbs less or 1/2 inch taller and I am within "desired" BMI levels.
