I was talking to the front desk lady at my doctor's office for my gallbladder removal consult. She asked me if my insurance would consider it to be a pre-existing condition.

I told her I thought ObamaCare eliminated the whole pre-existing condition exclusion. Apparently not. She's been having insurance companies make exclusion lately until the legislation is finalized.

Please tell me I'm fine and I'm not going to get to the hospital on Monday morning and they're not going to be all, "That'll be $15,000 please." I signed up through the marketplace and didn't have to fill out any questionnaires. I already got a call from the hospital's insurance office saying I need to bring the deductible. So I should be fine, right? Right?
