The health care reform legislation passed this year introduced many changes to health insurance. Many of those changes do not go into effect for several years. A few key reforms, however, have just become law last week.
Among them: Under the new law, health care insurers will no longer be able to do the following:
- Deny coverage to children with pre-existing conditions;
- Impose lifetime limits or caps on health coverage;
- Cancel a policy without proving fraud;
- And deny health claims without giving you a chance to appeal the decision;
