How do you get health insurance if you have a pre existing medical condition?
I have a pre existing mental illness that is controlled very well with medication, and I am a productve, very educated, young member of society and otherwise healthy person, and NO insurance will cover me. What do I do? Should I just lie and hope that they don't find out (or research into my medical file)? It has been over a year since my diagnosis and treatment.

Through an employer. They'll find out. It's never 'erased'. You need to get an employer with a group plan. If you have no coverage now, you'll have to wait out the 18 month preexisting condition period, and THEN it will be covered.

They will find out so don't hide it. You can compare using zip code because each area is different in terms of premium costs and availability. Meditator Health Insurance Comparisons http://healthinsurancetips4u.blogspot.com/
