Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance in Dallas-Fort Worth

Pre-existing conditions are medical conditions and health problems that you had before the start date of your health insurance coverage. Examples of pre-existing conditions include cancer, asthma, diabetes, and even pregnancy.

Under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), health insurance companies cannot refuse to cover you because of any pre-existing conditions nor can they charge you more money for coverage or subject you to a waiting period. These Obamacare rules affect plans that began on or after January 1, 2014.

Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance in Dallas-Fort Worth

What is a Pre-Existing Condition?

Just about any health condition that you have prior to the start of an insurance policy can qualify as a pre-existing condition. Make sure to check the exact details of a plan since each health insurance company decides what it considers a pre-existing condition. Even a more minor medical condition — like acne, tonsillitis, high blood pressure, or menstrual irregularities — could be deemed a health issue, depending on the provider.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, common examples of pre-existing conditions that affected coverage before the ACA are:

  • Cancer
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Depression and other mental health disorders
  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Gender dysphoria
  • Heart disease, coronary artery, bypass surgery
  • Hemophilia
  • Hepatitis C
  • Lupus
  • Obesity
  • Paraplegia
  • Paralysis
  • Pregnancy
  • Pending surgery or hospitalization
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stroke

When Can a Pre-Existing Condition be Denied?

Health insurance plans that started on or before March 23, 2010 — called grandfathered plans — are not subject to the rules of Obamacare. If you enrolled in a health plan prior to this date, your insurer can choose to cancel your policy or increase your premiums for pre-existing medical conditions.

It is also possible for an employer to maintain and enroll new employees in a grandfathered plan under certain circumstances. An employer must notify you that it has a grandfathered plan. If your employer offers a grandfathered plan but you need coverage for a pre-existing condition, you can get a plan through the Obamacare marketplace.
