Could a health insurance company deny coverage for intentionally refusing a Covid-19 vaccine?

Let’s suppose that it is August 2021 and most Americans have been already vaccinated against the coronavirus. However, some Americans refuse the vaccination. 

If a person gets sick and requires medical treatment for COVID-19, could an insurance company legally deny payment based on the person’s previous refusal to be vaccinated?Assume that the person does not have any valid medical or religious objections to vaccination. Also assume that the vaccine is available for free.

    The Anti-Vac crowd has caused a surge in previously eradicated diseases like Measles, TB, Polio, etc. And they base their decisions mostly on outdated or disproven 'science. They are all nuts.

    No, not unless some laws are changed to become really wacky.
