WHY LYING MIGHT NOT BE NECESSARY
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU’RE CAUGHT LYING
- Complete void of contract dated all the way back to its outset;
- All outstanding claims still in processing will be dropped from coverage and the full financial responsibility of these medical bills will be placed at your feet;
- Your insurance company may sue you for claims that they’ve previously paid out, requesting full reimbursement for the amounts paid out;
- Future health insurance providers you attempt to sign with will be able to see this previous falsehood on your record and may choose not to cover you.
How about you all? Have you ever known anyone who placed a small or large lie on their application when they applied for health insurance?
Did anything bad ever happen to them?

Jacob’s Thoughts – Listed below are my random thoughts as I was reading this article.
- There’s some profound truths to this article above.
- In general, since there is so much money at stake, you can rest assured that insurance companies are VERY smart. They have professionals who spend their entire working lives optimizing the insurance company monetary streams to improve operations. How can normal people think that with a 2 min lie, they are going to get ahead this way? It really just isn’t worth it in the long run!
- With finances, always tell the truth, even if the truth is painful at times!
