Discrimination Sub-Question 2

Should health insurers be allowed to use our genomic information to determine the rates we pay?
Yes Rationale:

No Rationale: 
Only medical information about existing diseases or conditions should be used to determine insurance rates.
Maybe Rationale: 
Health insurers should be allowed to use this information in certain cases; for example, if it would reduce the cost of healthcare.
