Tsk, Bill. So virulent! I'm flattered! You've been trying to pick one
with me for some time..
Ah shite Vicky, just let it go...
(Snipped out a bunch of stuff)
"Show me an insurance company that covers pre-existing conditions. Does
your health insurance cover you when you've been diagnosed prior to signing
Actually, Vicki, it is now the law that insurance companies cover
pre-existing conditions if the insured can prove coverage for the same
condition, with any form of insurance, for the previous 12 month period.
(Medicaid and Medicare DO qualify as insurance coverage too)
No break in coverage is allowed but the new insurance company is also not
allowed to get a one year vacation on covering the condition, regardless of
what it is, as long as there is proof of coverage for the preceding 12 month
I might not know much about a lot of things, but believe me, with my medical
bills for my son, I know about insurance and how to make them stand up and
bark like the bitch dogs they are!
As long as we're on the topic, I've been solicited to sell PPL. Once I got
into the pitch room, you know, that separate room that the rep takes you
into, so no one else can hear what it is goes on during the actual sign up
process....yeah, that one, I made the comment that this all looked strangely
like AmWay with a twist..oh, he didn't like that comment, made a smart
remark and well you can guess how that meeting digressed from there knowing
my temper. In short, it smelled like a giant scam to me back then and I've
never been able to get over that slimy feeling I get whenever I hear about
PPL or other gimmicky MLM schemes, no matter what they sell. The only
pre-paid legal system I've ever seen work was the one we had back when I was
a police officer called CLEAT (Combined Law Enforcement yada yada, I can't
remember what the A and T stood for) those guys were a state pool for police
officers, we paid dues and if you got into something and needed a lawyer, it
was truly pre-paid. You're dues didn't go up, your representation was by
attorneys that specialized in representing police officers and you didn't
pay one dime to the lawyer, ever. The contract/agreement was about three
paragraphs long too. I agreed to have them deduct a certain amount from my
check, they agreed that as long as I was a member and I got sued or
arrested, they would represent me. It was that simple. Anything that needs
ten pages of finely typed, single spaced paper to cover always gives me that
hinky feeling down at the base of my neck.........you know, that weird
feeling you get when you know you're about to get poked in the eye but can't
stop it.....yeah, that is what it is like.
Have a great day, best of luck in selling that stuff........but it was a
little tasteless to blatantly advertise using Michele (with whom I have no
special love loss or anything) to boost it.
Last thing, if Bill really wanted to pick a fight with you, he'd simply get
on a plane and come to your house to argue his point, he doesn't need an
underlying, concocted reason.........he's pretty up front about that sort of

- Happy to, Kirsti. Here's my link, I'll give you a ring, or you call me with
questions. As you say, with the cost of attorneys, and the even higher cost
of not consulting one, this is a "must." As Investigators we absolutely
must consult attorneys often. Since Teri Shiavo everyone wants a Will, and
a Living Will. Since ChoicePoint & BofA, the Identity Theft Shield is in
huge demand because it includes restoration of your identity. Our clients
all need legal advice, and I prefer that they get it from a qualified
attorney, not from me. I also prefer that they have enough money left over
to hire me. It's win/win.

I don't know much about pre-paid legal, but interested in learning more.
Please send me some info. With $225 hr avg attorney fees and the litigous
society we live in, is certainly worth at least looking at.
