:/ What are we to do about people who get dropped from their healthcare plan because they become diagnosed with cancer? That has happened to my uncle who was diagnosed with lung cancer (who is now passed away) and to one of my closest friend's sister when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. It saddens me that healthcare companies are allowed to simply drop a customer when that customer becomes "too expensive". What are the chances that person is able to get other healthcare insurance? 0% for my uncle and so far 0% for my friend's sister (she's still trying). It wasn't possible for my uncle because of the so-called pre-existing condition. Well... duh it's a pre-existing condition because his previous healthcare provider (BLUE CROSS OF CALIFORNIA... THX for your support) dropped him when got his new condition.
