    Identification and management of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. Workshop. USA, 1992/07/20.

    As we identify genes predictive of diseases such as heart disease, stroke, or cancer, we may unwittingly deprive individuals and families at risk of such diseases from access to health care.

    This is a problem in distributive justice.

    Commercial health insurance is built along lines similar to other forms of commercial insurance in which the notion of « actuarial fairness » plays a key role.

    Actuarial fairness contents that parties seeking insurance ought to pay according to their respective risks of filing a claim.
