“Tell me, Mr. health care insurance provider executive, if I had fed my wife enough cheeseburgers, sloppy Joes and greasy steaks, and she developed an abnormal bulge in the wall of the aorta, the body's largest artery, would your health care insurance provider company have sold her a policy after she developed that condition?” OJ Simpleson asked an insurance provider salesman.
“Hmm, that’s an interesting question, Mr OJ Simpleson. Unfortunately my health care insurance provider company does not insure hypothetical cases, just factual.”
“I see. Suppose I had macular degeneration, which leads to loss of vision, and one day while carrying a steak knife, I accidentally poke it into my wife, would that amount to murder? See, I’m not asking you if your hmo insurance covers macular degeneration or not. Just tell me if that would be murder: Yes or No.”
“I don’t know the answer, sir, nor has my provider trained me to answer such questions.”
“Hmm, ok, suppose I had erectile dysfunction, would your insurance agent sell me a policy to cover its treatment costs?”
“Sure sir, my health policies can cover that. Why are you affected by erectile dysfunction, sir?”
The health provider smiled stealthily. He had struck business and discovered blackmail material on OJ Simpleson too!
The moral of this story is that you must buy your insurance discreetly.
