If the COBRA runs out on 8/19, that means she/they had 18 months to obtain coverage elsewhere, like maybe the husband's job? The condition would not be considered 'pre existing' as long as they have had continuous coverage.

While I am in favor of covering pre existing conditions, I also believe that they should pay higher premiums for that coverage, as they have not been contributing to the insurance pool previously to off set the known higher expense that condition will cost.
