An estimated 2.6 million people in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, have diagnosed preexisting medical conditions that could put them at risk of being denied insurance coverage if they try to buy it on their own, according to reports. The figure comprises nearly 1.5 million people in Virginia, slightly more than 1 million in Maryland and about 114,000 in Washington, DC, according to Families USA, a group that advocates universal healthcare.
