[Insurance companies and genetic testing]
Not really a response, but the post reminded me: some time ago, someone
posted a bit on one of the lists to which I subscribe--this one seems
the most logical--alleging that results of genetic testing have _already
been used_ to deny insurance coverage. The rationale: the test
revealed a pre-existing condition.
Does anyone have any details on this? Perhaps a reliable citation? Or
am I merely repeating another Internet rumor?
I don't know whether I'm hoping for truth or falsehood here. Of course,
it's only a matter of time....
