Under Coverage.

Publicly traded Insure.com’s blog hosted two entries in which employee Joe White described homosexuality as “the biggest risk to life expectancy that goes unrecognized by insurance companies.” Being gay, he goes on, all the while citing bunk research, can be just as disastrous as smoking. Insure.com CEO Bob Bland promised to investigate the matter, but did point out that insurance companies do regularly reject people based on HIV status and other “risky hobbies.” Still, he insists the company wants “to do a wider-ranging issue that is fair and balanced…” Bill O’Reilly voices Insure.com’s commercials.
