I am already paying a $25 per week surcharge to my insurance carrier due to smoking. If someone lies to avoid paying the surcharge and gets ill they
can deny coverage for them. I'll state the obvious by asking why other dangerous habits and hobbies are not subject to the same rules, such
1.Obesity caused by poor diet, consuming junk food despite universal knowledge of the risk.
2. Bungee jumping, cliff diving, scuba diving, base jumping etc.
3. Alcohol consumption.
4. Being promiscuous, having unprotected sex.
I could list a thousand more, but I'm sure you see where I'm going with this.
