Insurance has not always been viewed as a corporate behemoth; it was once seen as the basis for a fair and just society. In recent times, the fear is that not all will have equal access to the just results that ‘risk pooling’ can bring, and the ‘genetic underclass’ might become the archetypal group not caught by the safety net (Wiesing, 2000, p. 373). This chapter considers proposals to regulate genetic discrimination in insurance in light of recent litigation in sex discrimination.
