Some Insurers Do Not Cover Suicide-Related Costs

Kaiser Health News (2/18, Andrews) reports that some health insurance policies refuse to provide coverage for suicide-related injuries, despite allegations that such rescissions are forbidden by Federal law. Kaiser quotes Sara Rosenbaum, a professor of health policy at The George Washington University: “Suicide is a common exclusion. Insurers are all over the place on this, and state law varies tremendously.”
