  1. >An internal document from insurer TAL, obtained by the ABC, reveals the company has begun adding an exclusion clause for the coronavirus in new insurance policies.

  2. All payments that these insurance companies get so that when the crisisses come the public sector covers people.

  3. Important to know that this is for **new** policies. Every insurer in the world will do this.

  4. this is so stupid. why not just go with the old monty python exclusion at the bottom of each policy in tiny print. “this policy will not pay any claim made by you.”

  5. Private health insurance is superior in every…..oh.

  6. Fucking wow. Iam forever greatful for the nhs

  7. Won’t matter if you argue the cause of death is pneumonia, checkmate insurance scum!

  8. Entirely fair enough, otherwise the premiums would be so high it would be seen to be “Insurance company exploiting corona virus for huge premiums”. Reality is right now you can’t go get life insurance for Covid19 if you have any associated risk factors to death.

    This is just how insurance works and isn’t surprising.

  9. I like how, in America, you can have insurance, but if you get sick for long enough, you can still go straight up bankrupt from bills even with insurance. At that point, why even pay insurance from the start? You’re going bankrupt whether you got the insurance or not.

    This system is unimaginable for me, and it’s even crazier that people are refusing Bernies answer to this problem because they can’t do simple math that actually goes in their favor either way.

  10. SON-UVA… I was going to use my gubmint payout to buy some health insurance and now I won’t be covered anyway?!?
