health insurance. it's worthless.

Ron, whether it's primary or secondary is not the issue, the issue is that it's not paying for his treatment. If one does not have a primary health insurance policy, then the BSA health policy becomes the primary insurer. The coverage stinks and is very limited and the BSA does not do enough to educate parents, especially inner city parents who may not have primary coverage, It's very careless, reckless and insensitive of the BSA to recruit poor children and not tell their parents of the new Scouts that the accidental and sickness policy is very limited and doesn't pay for very much. Shame on them.

Hm. Well, I have to admit that my understanding of the BSA health insurance is shakier than perhaps it should be. I'd hate to think that the BSA is not meeting it's obligations here, but I'm not going to say it's not possible. If so, it would be shameful.
