Has anyone been denied individual health insurance by Aetna due to being on Worker's Compensation (WC)? I am a Hospice RN who had a fall while working and tore my rotator cuff, had a failed surgery and now require a shoulder replacement.
This is all covered by another insurance company, but was told by Aetna that I would be denied coverage r/t being on WC. I don't know what one has to do with the other. I also thought that under Obama's new healthcare reforms, that it was illegal to deny coverage for a pre-existing condition. (Not that they would have any responsibility for any of these bills anyway!) I am in excellent health except for this condition and am terrified of having no insurance.
I am told by Aetna that they believe that all ins. companies will deny me also. I wonder how many others are in the same boat?
Let me know if you are. Thanks
