If you're in Washington state, if you're declined by the insurance company, you can enroll in the State's insurance pool plan. Depending on what state you live in.
In the state of Georgia, yes. If you live in Georgia and apply for individual health insurance, you can be denied if you or a member of your family has herpes and treats it with an expensive prescription. Even if the person was previously covered by the company under a group health plan.
Same situation in Minnesota also.
Given that the vast majority of the adult population has herpes, either orally or genitally, it would appear that the key is diagnosis. Some 80+% of adults have oral herpes and 25% has genital herpes. This is a complex issue, really, since most infected people don't know they have it, but are contagious at times.
Under the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka "ObamaCare"), this would be considered a pre-existing condition, and could not be used as a basis to deny you coverage. This particular provision went into effect in 2014, and is applicable to ALL health insurance plans offered.
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), pre-existing conditions are no longer a barrier to health insurance coverage.
"Depending on your health insurance, you may or may not be covered for herpes medication. If your policy includes prescription drugs, then you should be covered."
You should be able to, herpes isn't a life threatening illness.
Herpes can't be diagnosed in underwear.
Yes, herpes is not good for your health.
It is not likely to be mis-diagnosed with herpes, but it is possible. Cultures are the most reliable test; blood tests are less reliable.
Herpes doesn't die, nore does the person diagnosed with it. The common types of herpes are not life threatening.
From my personal expierience, yes it is. I found out I had genital herpes in April and I had health insurance, but lost my job a week later and the insurance was dropped. Now that its August, I tried to get health insurance with FL BCBS and after I paid them (conveniently), they sent me a letter saying they can't cover me due to a pre existing condition. The only "condition" I have is genital herpes. So I would tell you yes they do.
Health problems are not connected to herpes. Some health problems can trigger break outs but they are not the actual cause of herpes.
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, "pre-existing conditions" are no longer a barrier in health insurance.
A yellowish tinge in not necessarily a symptom of illness. Herpes is diagnosed by the sores that it produces.
