Aetna CEO: I would be turned down for health insurance

Mark Bertolini, the head of insurer Aetna, faced a tough time in 2001 when his teenage son Eric was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that was considered incurable. In 2004, Bertolini broke his neck in a skiing accident. He readily admits that his health problems likely would mean he'd be rejected for coverage if he were to seek a policy on the individual market today.
