Survey by Ask The Doctor Reveals More American’s are Being Turned Down for Health Insurance…
San Francisco Chronicle

Ask The Doctor recently finished conducting a survey with 1000 of their American users and found that 75% of those surveyed that had applied for health insurance at some point within the last year were denied due to previous medical conditions. The scary part is that the insurance companies were willing to insure these individuals but at rates as high as 5 times more than normal.

Almost 40% of those surveyed held health insurance previously from their old employers. Due to the major economic slump however, many of these people lost their jobs and hence joined the ranks of the uninsured.
