AMA News Release
Seems the medical insurance companies are trying to exclude coverage of injuries from "recreational activities". This includes rockclimbing, skiing, riding motorbikes, jogging... So you would be covered for falling down the stairs at work, but not covered for tripping while jogging at lunchtime. Actually, the technicality is that you would be covered, but that they would refuse to pay the cost of the coverage, and would send you the entire bill. It would take a true politician to explain to me how that counts as "covered"...

Comment on this to Congress
