ACA: No More Pre-Existing Condition Hurdles

Before the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted, one of the biggest barriers to health insurance coverage was pre-existing conditions. Insurance companies could deny coverage or charge higher rates to individuals with pre-existing medical conditions, leaving them uninsured or underinsured.

The ACA changed all that. It prohibits health insurance companies from denying coverage or charging higher premiums based on pre-existing conditions. This means that individuals with pre-existing conditions can now access affordable health insurance coverage.

What does this mean for you?
If you have a pre-existing condition, you can no longer be denied health insurance coverage. You can also switch health insurance plans without worrying about being charged a higher rate or denied coverage altogether.

Open Enrollment Period
Open enrollment is the period during which you can sign up for or change your health insurance plan. During this period, you can compare plans and prices to find the best coverage for your needs.

Qualifying Life Events
Outside of open enrollment, you can also change your health insurance plan if you experience a qualifying life event. Qualifying life events include:

– Losing health insurance coverage
– Getting married or divorced
– Having a child
– Moving to a new state

Switching Plans
If you want to switch health insurance plans, you should do so during open enrollment or after experiencing a qualifying life event. You can compare plans and prices on or through a licensed insurance agent.

If you have any questions about the ACA or pre-existing conditions, please contact a licensed insurance agent. They can help you find the best health insurance plan for your needs.
