Insurance companies like to intimidate people - they are covered. A letter
of HIPPA is issued shortly after employment termination/layoff that is shown
by the holder (hour friend's husband) to the new employer/insurance co. They
MUST, by law, accept those in the previous plan with no pre-existing
clauses. *IF* they mislaid that HIPPA letter that is so precious, perhaps
they can get a duplicate from the former insurance company. (~_^)
