After a feature article in the Los Angeles Times, Blue Cross of California announced today that they will no longer ask doctors for help in discovering pre-existing medical conditions that patients might have omitted from their coverage applications. This decision was made after the newspaper published this article which generated criticism from doctors, civil rights groups, patient advocates and Gov. Schwarzenegger.

Glad to hear this.  I am a Blue Cross patient in Arizona and it really worried me.  I am not a spring chicken any more and health care is most important to me.  Makes me wonder if Blue Cross of Arizona does the same thing?
