Prominent health insurance providers have been routinely targeting women newly diagnosed with breast cancer and canceling their policies. In fact, it was recently revealed that insurance giant WellPoint deliberately used a special computer program that tracked records down and alerted the company of patients with recent breast cancer diagnoses.

We cannot stand back and allow insurance companies to ruin lives. Sign the petition below telling U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to continue to place pressure on American insurance companies to stop rescinding policies.

Dear Secretary Sebelius,

I am horrified to hear about insurance companies' practice of canceling policies after recent breast cancer diagnoses. The sole purpose of health insurance is to provide financial assistance in the event that expensive medical procedures are vital to one's health. Rescinding a policy due to a serious condition not only restricts a patient's treatment options, but also contradicts the very reason to purchase the policy in the first place.

Your efforts to eradicate this practice from the health insurance industry are honorable, and some corporations have even reacted by renouncing it altogether. But we still need your help to make sure the act of rescinding policies is made illegal altogether.

Insurance companies should be committed first and foremost to the health of their clients. I urge that you continue to fight for your constituents, and encourage insurance providers to get back into the business of helping people stay healthy.
