Re: [IP] yikes :-(



Out of my 12+ jobs I've had in my life, with or without lapse in coverage, I
have never, ever been asked about prior health from an employers medical
provider. I have been without insurance for a 9 month period ( just 1 1/2
years ago) without Cobra and still no medical history questions. Don't know
if this is state-by-state or what but I guess I should feel fortunate.
