A pre-existing condition is any medical condition for which you experience signs, symptoms, testing or treatment before joining CHM, regardless of whether you've received a diagnosis. (Routine or maintenance medications are considered treatment.)
For example, if you have a stent that was inserted for a heart condition, the stent is considered treatment and your heart condition is pre-existing.
A condition is no longer considered pre-existing if you have experienced one year without signs, symptoms, or treatment; you’re not on a maintenance medication regimen for that condition; and it’s documented by your official medical records.
In contrast, cancer is no longer pre-existing if, after your doctor has pronounced you cancer-free or cured, you have gone five years without any signs, symptoms, testing, or treatment (other than routine follow-up appointments).
