RE:   The Federally-run Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP)
The federally-run Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) will offer transitional coverage to those currently enrolled in PCIP who have not yet secured other health insurance from January 1, 2014 through January 31, 2014. This transitional coverage will allow PCIP enrollees more time to review Marketplace plan options and enroll in the coverage that best meets their needs. They will be notified by mail of this offer to extend their PCIP plan for an additional month, along with details about cost-sharing. Eligible enrollees can purchase PCIP transitional coverage by sending in a January premium payment; this will be the same monthly rate that they paid for December 2013.

If the Government offers health care, and at the same time forces insurance companies to allow preexisting?

July 4, 2013 in Health insurance

conditions. Then what is to stop the insurance companies from just closing their doors and leaving us with just the Government ran health care. Where are the choices in that?
But here is the kicker. You will have no choice but to buy the government ran health care or pay a fine. (if you don’t already have insurance.) Until that insurance company either raises the rates, or closes the doors. Then what?

Health Insurance – Preexisting Condition – Who does it: Public, Private, or both?

May 11, 2013 in Insurance jobs and educations

Do public health insurance companies (medicare, mediaid, veticare, CHIPS, and forgot the last one) practice that if you have a preexisting condition, you can be excluded?
Do private health insurance companies practice it?
Do employer-based health insurance practice it?

Do all health insurance companies practice it?

Will pre-existing conditions be covered by healthcare insurance offered by another employer?

February 12, 2013 in Insurance jobs and educations

I’m currently covered through my employer-sponsored healthcare insurance provided by Anthem Blue Shield/Blue Cross of California. If I decide to accept a job with another employer and a different healthcare insurance company, will my pre-existing conditions be covered? One of those conditions was surgery to remove neuroendocrine tumors.

What is considered a pre-existing condition?

January 7, 2013 in Insurance jobs and educations

We had insurance until the 31st of October 2009 then my husband got laid off because they were rebuilding the company and he got rehired on the 25th of February. During that time i found out i have to get a procedure done but put it off cause of having to pay cash for it, so my question is when he got laid off he lost coverage and now that he is re-hired and i just called to reinstate our health coverage will they cover the cost of the procedure or does that fall into the pre-existing condition?

Dental insurance – if I find some to purchase, does it cover pre-existing conditions?

October 17, 2012 in Personal Insurances

I have a broken crown, heard it’d be about $1000 to repair.

Any kind of dental insurance would probably help with the cost, but not if it doesn’t cover pre-existing.

Yet if it covers pre-existing, seems like they’d lose money.

Any feedback on this?

How can insurance companies include preexisting conditions without a health care mandate?

September 15, 2012 in Health insurance

If there’s no mandate, and insurance companies are forced to give me affordable health care regardless of preexisting conditions, that means I only have to get health insurance when I come down with cancer. I hear many Republicans stating that they are all for barring insurance companies from excluding those with preexisting conditions, but none of them explain how you can do so without a national mandate to buy health insurance like we have with auto insurance.

Insurer denied benefits for preexisting condition…?

September 15, 2012 in Insurance jobs and educations

My wife (a teacher) recently started a new job and joined a group health plan. Before she started, she had health insurance continuously with her parents right up until the time she started as a teacher.

But the insurer denied benefits for a recent doctor’s visit, citing the preexisting condition clause. When we told the insurer about the other coverage, they said “they don’t do that.” Is this illegal under HIPPA?

Can pregnancy be a pre-existing condition when you are eligible for coverage as per HIPAA portability laws?

August 21, 2012 in Insurance jobs and educations

Hello,
I recently left my job and group health coverage with BCBS in New York to go to college in Louisiana. Before making this decision I called the new insurance company for the university graduate students to ensure that they would cover my pregnancy. (I am now 6 months pregnant… I was only a few weeks pregnant when I first contacted them.)

Each time I called, they explained to me that pregnancy was a pre-existing condition, but if I had 12 months of previous continued group coverage without a significant break in coverage, they would waive the pre-existing condition. This was confirmed with follow-up phone calls and I even sent a few e-mails to get this in writing.
