      Even if you are paying cobra insurance, the new insurance cannot claim

      pre-exsiting conditions. in ga there is a law which states if you have

      no break in coverage, then the new insurance company has to pick up the

      condition. is there any chance the insurance with the new job is the

      same company? i have had coverage with the same major insurance company

      for the past 8-9 yrs; but with different companies. They tried to pull

      the same stuff on me too. It did take several telephone calls but I

      finally made it up the ladder enough to talk with a supervisor and

      continued to remind them I was not changing insurance companies just

      jobs. I also followed it up with a letter. Even if it is not the same

      company they cannot consider it pre-existing d/t your having continous

      coverage without any breaks in coverage. I would contact the Insurance

      Commisioners office and discuss it with them. My dh is recievng

      disabilty social security with medicare a & b, has several health

      problems, and we have never been w/o insurance coverage. i had to pay

      cobra a couple of times (at an ungodly price) but it was worth it in

      order to have medical coverage. paying an accelerated fee for coverage

      is a less costly than paying for a catastrophic illness. be firm and

      assertive with the insurance people. get all your facts straight

      because knowledge is enpowering! hope this helps.
