Preexisting toes now approved

I recently wrote about being rejected for health insurance because of my preexisting toes, two of which often develop corns. Because my foot doctor had mentioned surgery to me, Kaiser Permanente (KP) wouldn’t insure me.

I am glad that I got over my sulking and asked my doctor to write a letter to KP saying that I had resolved the problem with corn plasters and would not be needing surgery (how insane to voluntarily spend $5000 and suffer three weeks off my feet).

The letter worked, and I’m glad that I appealed and justice triumphed (or something like that).
