Does anyone have experience with insurance in this fashion? I could use the names of some companies, even if I would have to pay more to get it, it would be nice to have.
you should not have said anything about herpes when you filled out the health questionaire,then after you had the insurance you could start using it to pay for medicines.you could have told them you caught it after you filed for the insurance,they couldnt know the difference,no way they could.sometimes we talk to much when we dont need to.live and learn,live and learn.
