Mich. smoker may stay uninsured unless he quits

FILE - In this Saturday, March 2, file 2013 photo, a woman smokes a cigarette while sitting in her truck in Hayneville, Ala. The federal health care law requires insurers to accept all applicants regardless of pre-existing medical problems. But it also allows them to charge smokers premiums that are up to 50 percent higher than those offered non-smokers - a way for insurers to ward off bad risks. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)
