With the passage of the healthcare reform bill comes many changes to family health insurance policies. Some of them occur immediately.
What significant impact will families feel now?
- Children can no longer be excluded from health insurance plans due to pre-existing conditions.
- Adult children can remain on your health insurance policy as a dependent until the age of 26.
- There are no more lifetime or annual caps on health coverage, either per individual or per family.
- Free preventative care will be offered with new health plans.
