Canadian Woman Loses Health Insurance Over "Happy" Facebook Photos


A woman in Canada has had her health benefits stripped after her health insurance company snooped on her Facebook profile and saw her looking "happy" in some of the photos.  Nathalie Blanchard, 29, was on long-term leave for a depressive disorder.


Because of her leave, Blanchard had been receiving monthly benefit payments from health insurer Manulife.  They suddenly stopped, and the health insurer cited three photos of Blanchard looking happy, that they had found on Facebook, as the reason.


The snaps, taken on holiday, at her birthday party and at a Chippendales bar show, were not the only reason to stop the benefits, according to Manulife. Blanchard's lawyer argues that small vacations and fun outings are on doctor's orders.
