    Have a client, son of a client actually, looking for health insurance.

    24 years old, good health (except for smoking).

    4 yrs ago spent 2 months as an inpatient for alcohol abuse. Followed by another 4 months in a half way house.

    Most carriers require 5 yrs sober. Time wants 8 yrs. Even the STM carriers ask about A&D treatment in the last 5 yrs.

    Is he screwed?

    Aetna possibly? I'm not sure since Aetna seems to really focus on drinking on the application.
