Health Care Reform – 8 States Allow Domestic Abuse To Be Considered A Pre-existing Condition

Listening to the radio last week I heard a fact that stunned me – 8 states in America allow domestic abuse to be a preexisting condition. That stat stuck with me for all kinds of reasons including the simple reality that I find it appalling.

I researched it a bit as well, and it been confirmed by both CNN and McClatchy.

Imagine having to make that decision – do I call the authorities and potentially loose health care coverage or not? Hopefully starting with the health care vote this Sunday that will no longer be a potential in some peoples lives.

In case you were wondering what the states were:

Idaho
Mississippi
North Carolina
North Dakota
Oklahoma
South Carolina
South Dakota
Wyoming

and the District of Columbia
