Yes! The State of Connecticut has taken steps to ensure that their residents are able to buy and keep health insurance. Read on to see what Connecticut health insurance can do for you.
Promising Information about Connecticut Health Insurance:
If you are insured under a group policy (such as one provided by your employer), you cannot be denied or limited coverage because of your health status. This practice is called nondiscrimination.
If you become ill, your Connecticut health insurance cannot be canceled. This practice is called guaranteed renewability. This coverage cannot be canceled unless you neglect to pay your premiums, move out of your coverage area or act unethically toward your Connecticut health insurance company.
The guaranteed issue says that if you are purchasing a group plan for 50 employees or fewer, you cannot be turned down because of your age or health status.
If you leave your job, you may be able to remain on your old group plan for a limited time through state-continued coverage, or COBRA. Your COBRA coverage can last up to 18 months but cannot be renewed. For more information on COBRA requirements, contact the U.S. Department of Labor at (404) 562-2156.
Are insurance companies allowed to turn me down for individual Connecticut health insurance?
Yes. Companies selling individual Connecticut health insurance policies are allowed to turn anyone down for a number of reasons, including past or present health status.
What do I do if I am turned down for individual health insurance?
You may be eligible to buy an individual Connecticut health insurance policy through the Connecticut Health Reinsurance Association (HRA). The HRA is a high risk pool for Connecticut residents between the ages of 19 and 64. For more information on the HRA, call 1-800-842-0004.
