With so much news focused on the potential changes to the health care system, consumers have many questions about the shortened 2018 Open Enrollment Period. In our new blog series, we’ll be answering your questions about health insurance, Open Enrollment and The Affordable Care Act.
If I have diabetes or another pre-existing condition, can I enroll in a health insurance plan?
Even though the 2018 Open Enrollment Period is shorter, the current health law is still in place. Meaning, if you have a pre-existing condition insurers cannot deny you coverage. That being said, it’s important to keep your health condition in mind when selecting a health insurance plan. How often you anticipate seeing a doctor could influence the type of plan you choose.
To figure out which type of plan will fit your personal needs, call to talk to one of our licensed agents at no cost to you: 866-909-0798.
If I have asthma or another pre-existing condition, will I have to pay more for health insurance?
Again, under the Affordable Care Act, insurers cannot deny or charge you more money for health insurance if you have a pre-existing condition.
