Insurance coverage with herpes?
I'm not sure if someone on this forum can advise me about this, but I've gotten good info here before so I thought I'd give it a shot.  I was diagnosed with genital HSV, type 1, about a month ago.  Conveniently, I've just started a new job, and I'm in the process of applying for insurance under the new employer.  I'm concerned about how herpes will affect my coverage.

Does anyone know if insurance companies use HSV as a reason to deny coverage?  The disease so common that it seems unlikely, but the nurse-practitioner who diagnosed me seemed to think it would be a problem.  Or do they typically put in a preexisting condition clause?  If it matters, I've been covered by this same insurance company since I was born, under either my family's plan or a short-term plan of my own.  

Any info would be great!

Some folks have had issues with insurance and genital herpes but most haven't. Usually when you are applying under a companies insurance with your job it isn't an issue.
