Genes are AKA preexisting conditions.

I imagine that everyone can see why insurance companies would work hard (lobby) to prevent people from knowing what their probable risks might be. Insurance companies should not worry about the cost of genetic testing. People will decide to buy the tests themselves,under alias names, and they will not tell the insurance companies what the tests may reveal.
