Denied InsuranceDec 21 2012
I currently have medical insurance under my husbands retirement benefits plan. When he got the renewal for 2013, my insurance went up nearly $400/mo. Because of this steep increase, I inquired with several insurance companies for individual medical insurance. Anthem and Cigna denied to even accept an application I applied with Aetna and worked with an Aetna sales rep during the application process. At no time did the Aetna rep give me the impression they would not cover me even though I had pre-existing conditions. After a lengthy application and an interview with underwriting, I was denied coverage. Needless to say I am now without insurance because I did not re-enroll with Aetna under my husbands retirement plan. Their customer service was rude and denied I was led on believing I would get coverage. DO NOT apply with Aetna for individual coverage and get the same runaround as I got.
