    Agreed, insurance companies are nothing but legalized Ponzi schemes.

    I thought the pre-existing condition BS was illegal now due to the ACA.

    It was travel insurance that they bought to be covered in the US so the ban on refusing coverage for pre-existing conditions may not apply for that.

    That said the amount of the bill is beyond ridiculous, I would love to see how the hospital justifies charging anywhere near that.

    The blades infection was them making stuff up to not cover it. They dug around looking for any excuse not to pay up. Way to much money is tied up in red tap to pay the top of the pay not for covering them

    It's getting fairly heavy coverage up here in the great white north. Not the first time it's happened either.

    ACA doesn't apply to Canadian companies.
