Sure, but you could get health insurance like the Anthem plan I cited that covers pre-existing conditions for much cheaper.
Maybe, maybe not. That's what I was trying to say in the first part of my response. I could get it cheaper in theory, but they have to accept you to their plan first. Or, I've heard that some will accept you, but raise your premium. Unfortunately, if you have a pre-existing condition, you are at the mercy of the insurance companies unless you can get covered by a group plan (i.e. school or work).
In all reality, I will probably be denied by Anthem because I have to go see a rheumatologist twice a year and have some prescriptions associated with that. If I am denied there, Aetna will probably be my next best option.
