Most of us, when we look at an insurance policy, ask, “What is covered?” That’s a good question. Another good question is, “What is excluded from coverage?” Sometimes by studying the “Exclusion” section you will quickly determine that the policy will not work for you.
I have listed a few of the 34 items on one company’s “Exclusion” list that say a lot about the policy: Pre-existing conditions; dental examinations; expenses of normal pregnancy; care of a new born child; treatment of acne; treatment for mental, nervous or emotional conditions or sickness; and treatment of Substance Abuse.
Often the “Exclusion” list is printed in such a way (small print, no paragraphs, etc.) that it is not easily read. Yet it is important that you check it out. Remember the old insurance adage: “The large print giveth and the small print taketh away.” The originator of the adage must have been thinking about the “Exclusion” list.
