: : This is a little off topic but I hope someone can give me advice. I have had atrial fib and mitral valve prolapse for several years. I am trying to obtain health insurance but all companies have refused coverage because of this. Does anyone have any suggestions of a company I might check with for coverage? I'm 58 yrs. old., work every day (self-employed), good health (other than the mentioned conditions), non-smoker, and walk 2 miles daily, but NO HEALTH COVERAGE. Any suggestions?
: REPLY Perhaps it is becauseyou walk 2 miles /day that you can,t get coverage Walking that fareach and every day might be aggravating your artial fib and mitral valve prolapse for insurance purposes ie the insurancecompany might have a rule that no exercise should accompany those medical conditions before cover is given????
Sorry but that has to be one the strangest things I've ever heard. Exercise is GOOD for your body, even if you suffer with heart "problems." The problems Larry is referring to are not serious enough that ANY doctor or insurance company would consider him to be at risk for anything while exercising - it would more risky for him NOT to exercise.
KEEP ON WALKING LARRY!!! And good luck with the insurance thing =)
