Health Care Reforms That Can Affect Your Kid Right Now


images-4Hallelujah…health care reform has passed.  While the process of instituting the changes will no doubt be a long and tedious one, several adjustments will take place almost instantaneously…within the next 6 months.  Which ones benefit your little ones the most?

  1. Children under age 19 may not be excluded for pre-existing conditions.
  2. No more lifetime or annual caps on coverage.
  3. Free preventative care for all.
  4. Authorizes early funding of community health centers in all 50 states. Community health centers provide primary, dental and vision services to people in the community, based on a sliding scale for payment according to ability to pay.
  5. Adult children may remain as dependents on their parents’ policy until their 27th birthday.
  6. AND no more rescissions. Effective immediately, you can’t lose your insurance because you get sick.

Here are the rest.
