2. There's one thing I don't quite understand here


By "denying insurance on the basis of preexisting conditions," does it mean that a patient could not get insurance benefits for a preexisting condition on insurance that was procured after the condition?

For instance, some uninsured person breaks their leg, then goes buys insurance, then wants to have the insurance pay for the surgery for the leg that was broken prior to purchasing insurance?

Or does it rather mean something else, that insurance does not want to cover someone who has a preexisting condition - does not want to provide coverage for all medical conditions whatsoever?
