Health Care Reform and your health

By law, your coverage can’t be dropped or denied if you have a pre-existing medical condition or if you get sick. Because of the Health Care Reform, you can get health insurance regardless of the current state of your health, and you can’t be charged more because of your existing health or medical condition. When you get care for your pre-existing condition or a new health condition, you’ll still need to pay any deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance your plan requires.
