Wow. After initially balking, health insurers have agreed to cover children with pre-existing conditions, Talking Points Memo reports:

After Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wrote a letter warning insurers against using loopholes to avoid covering children with pre-existing conditions, AHIP President Karen Ignagni wrote back to say insurers will comply with all regulations.

Wow. It’s the law of the land, created by duly elected legislators and signed by our president according to the rules of our democracy — following it isn’t a matter of negotiation.
