RAPE is a Pre – Existing Condition Now…smh…REALLY
Christina Turner knows that not to be true.
Turner awoke on the side of a Fort Lauderdale road several months ago, nursing mysterious cuts and bruises that appeared after consuming drinks given to her by two men at a local night spot.
With signs alluding to the fact that she had been raped, the scared woman rushed to a local physician, where she was prescribed anti-AIDS medication. Luckily the 45-year-old was not infected, but unluckily, she was unceremoniously dropped from her health coverage.
Turner’s use of HIV/AIDS medication allowed her insurer to deem her rape as having been a pre-existing condition. The money hungry corporation will take her back in a few years on the condition that she can provide evidence of her AIDS-free status at that time.
“People who experience rape and sexual assault are victims,” exclaimed Susan Pisano, spokeswoman for America’s Health Insurance Plans. “We want them to be in a system where everyone is covered.” via HipHopWired
