Submission + - Woman Seeks Husband For Health Insurance ( 3

kkleiner writes: Terri Carlson is willing to marry you for your healthcare. This 45 year old woman suffers from a genetic condition, C4 Complement Deficiency, which causes her body to attack itself (similar to Lupus). Faced with skyrocketing health costs, and unable to get insurance (she’s currently on COBRA), Terri did the only thing she could do: she built a website and got on YouTube. Carlson’s situation challenges the courts under a statute already on the books: GINA. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 keeps insurance companies from using genetic data to deny you coverage.
