If people have health insurance apart from work, they will already be covered when something happens. Most people aren’t going to drop their insurance if they know they have a medical condition, hence covering someone with a pre-existing condition will rarely be needed.No. That's incorrect it does not go away at all. That said, I am 100% for making the insurance go to the individual and getting companies out of health insurance. For companies it is an uncontrollable cost increase year over year. I hate being involved.
The idea of making insurance companies accept people with costly conditions who were previously not customers is a bad one and I would think you would agree with that. Bottom line- insurers under those circumstances will raise prices as they did, dramatically.
