Indiana Health Insurance
According to data collected by the Center for Disease Control between 2001 and 2003, an average of 12.9% of Indiana residents a year had no Indiana health insurance.
Indiana Health Insurance Regulations
Indiana has some regulations that influence Indiana health insurance. Any Indiana health insurance company can include a pre-existing condition exclusion period for any medical conditions for which an individual was either treated or diagnosed within a year prior to the beginning of a new Indiana health insurance plan. The exclusion period (a time during the policy for which the designated condition is not covered) can last up to 12 months.
Old coverage can be used as credit towards a pre-existing exclusion period of a new Indiana health insurance plan provided there was no break in coverage. If the individual chooses to renew an existing Indiana medical insurance plan than that right is guaranteed regardless of health. Through Indiana health insurance law, guaranteed renewability provisions must be honored and all individuals wishing to renew an existing Indiana health insurance policy have the right to do so.
Under the Indiana health insurance law all policies must contain provisions for newborns and adopted children. Any parent’s individual Indiana health insurance policy automatically cover newborns and adopted children for 31 days.
Indiana health insurance companies can deny an individual access to Indiana medical insurance plans on the basis of health. Indiana health insurance rates also vary depending on age and health. However, Indiana residents are guaranteed coverage under an employer’s Indiana health insurance and cannot be denied or have limited coverage. For individuals between Indiana health insurance plans or between jobs, some Indiana health insurance companies provide access to temporary health insurance.
