I hope someone can help with this issue. I had recently joined a new company and was there about 2 months. I was experiencing a pain in the stomach area my doctor referred me to a surgeon who removed my gallbladder. Anthem the insurance company denied my claim due to pre-existing conditions. Prior to Anthem I had Kaiser for seven months. Before that I had 6 months with no coverage. Before that I had health insurance through work. They are using that 6 month gap to deny me coverage. I had experienced this pain off and on for years however in that last couple of years I had not attempted to treat it. I went to the doctors at Kaiser who did one ultrasound and they said there was nothing wrong. The surgeon I saw said it had to come out. The question is how it can be a pre-existing condition when I had one test in the last few years and the results were negative. And what are the chances my Gallbladder went bad during the 6 months I was not able to afford health care. I have been paying for health care for over twenty years, and the one time I need it they are screwing me. Can anyone offer any advice?
