    Why would an insurance company be looking at my medical history if I hadn't yet been hired?

    I am having a very hard time taking this seriously when you clearly haven't read it, can't spell the acronym correctly, don't know under what administration it was passed, don't give very much accurate information about it, and do give substantial misinformation about it. I expect some people will believe you, because anything on the internet must be true. Not everyone, however. But thanks for playing.

    That's not the point. True, HIPPA has fines and allows the public to sue for damages. However, when it comes to protecting health information it is a failure. The end result of HIPPA is less health care coverage for Americans. That means less income for hospitals. HIPPA is a fine example of propaganda at work.
    I think that is at least part of the point. If you are going to go on some tangential rant about it, at least get the facts right...

    I thought every one knew that about HIPAA?
    As far as saying pre existing conditions should be kept secret, what? Even if insurance company A didn't tell, I thought, at least in the past, I am not one hundred percent sure how recent laws have affected this, that you had to disclose any and all health conditions while applying for insurnce? If you hid information when applying you can be denied coverage.

    The OP was referring to applying for the job, not for the actual insurance coverage once you have the job. No one looks at your specific medical history when you apply for a job.

    I never said the Obama admin. is right wing. However, one only has to look at his history on trade policy to see that his admin. is business friendly. Hipaa was passed under Clinton, however, it was the Bush admin. that allowed insurance company's to share info. That was sold to the public as "greater privacy," it was not.
    You have to be kidding.
