No chance of them using all that health data for nefarious purposes. I see you had an irregular heartbeat on August 5, 10 years ago. So sorry, we can't cover that operation, pre-existing condition.

Gross. Further data for your insurer to use against you in one way or another.

It's good that people are skeptical. Now if only they would exercise this same skepticism when it comes to "free" stuff from the government.

@Qbert they can't deny for pre-existing conditions anymore. Haven't you been paying attention to Obamacare?

i'm pretty sure apple won't allow them to force users to share data with aetna. that would completely go against their pro-privacy stance.

Only if you sign up through the exchanges (i.e. use Obamacare). And the insurers have been pulling out of the exchanges in many states, leaving people with little or no options to get insurance through an exchange, meaning they have to buy the regular insurance policies, which can still deny coverage because they aren't ACA.
