Should companies be allowed to use your family health records to determine your coverage and rates?4He Hate Me 2012-10-12 04:24:01
I was reading recently that insurance companies are using family history to estimate the rates and even deny coverage where one can perceive a loss or a bad investment. I think most corporate employees are protected from such scrutiny, and should be allowed to join the group policies , except pre- existing conditions will enable the insurer to participate. But self-employed or employees of, say, a small private school can not get coverage at a reasonable price because his mom 's dad had a heart attack , colon cancer , etc. ..

My dad sprained his knee a few days, then returned to his work , but his knee was causing him so much pain to his boss to take the day off to get it looked at . He went to see a doctor (still in their work clothes ) after about 3 hours since I visited the doctor for a health insurance company called him on his mobile phone asking if he had an accident at work. since no one at work knows the phone number of your second phone ( which the company called it) hard to believe that it was pure luck my father was called by this health insurance company when he entered as a clinical work clothes asking to see a doctor . MedlinePlus My question is whether these companies to obtain medical records without the consent of the person around ?

I am a recovering alcoholic. I suppose my medical records will reveal that I was in a hospital 9 years ago. At the time I was not an alcoholic but my family thought I was. No DUI's and perfect health now.
