Rescission is only legal if it involves fraud or misrepresentation by the customer. The health care reform bill allowed health insurance companies a window of 6 months to comply with it. But WellPoint Inc was pushed by Democrats after a report in the news media that it had used computer algorithm to indentify and drop women with breast cancer investigation.
