Rape a preexisting condition to insurance companies...WTF? *Possible triggers*

*possible triggers*


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/21/insurance-companies-rape-_n_328708.html

A woman was denied health coverage because her precautionary anti-HIV meds she was taking because she was raped raised too many medical questions.
The article also goes on to say how it is common for insurance companies to deny health coverage to sexual assault survivors because PTSD and STIs are "preexisting conditions."

What a step in the wrong direction. RAGE!
