Despite what the earlier message of July 5th has stated and the nice little Brochure handed out at COS, Corpscare, does NOT cover pre-existing conditions (only after 6 mos). This was not disclosed to us at COS. Moreover, I have new allergies, previously I had one which I had before entering PC. For which Corpscare considers any allergy to be a previous condition for any and all allergy types, ie. skin and seasonal allergies are the same.

This is something I hope to take up with PC Medical, but can only take on so many battles at one time. Finding, a place to live and re-establishing myself, and working to pay my health bills, etc.
