QUESTION OF THE DAY: Should insurance companies have to cover pre-existing conditions?


An effort is on to ask Missouri voters whether insurance companies should have to cover pre-existing conditions.

A bill filed in the Missouri General Assembly would put that question on the ballot. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to release its decision this summer in a case challenging the Affordable Care Act, which mandates such coverage.

Should insurance companies be required to cover pre-existing conditions? Vote in the poll below.

  1. Such is ripe for fraudulent abuse. Why pay for health insurance? Simply wait until you need it, and then buy it. The very foundation of insurance is spreading the risk among those who suffer a loss and those who don’t but could, to incur less loss if one does. If only those suffering a loss are involved in it, it’s no longer insurance.
    Insurance of all kinds would be far less expensive if the state didn’t force it to do anything, other than comply with its contracts. One could get what insurance they thought they needed and could afford. We have more than ample socialized medicine, Medicare and Medicaid among others, to pick up the slack.
