Special Collection:

Topic: Health (Health care planning)

Keywords: health reform; pre-existing condition

Type: Report

Coverage: United States


This report discusses how, under health reform, no one will be denied coverage, charged a higher premium, or sold a policy that excludes coverage of essential benefits because of pre-existing conditions. The report presents the number of West Virginians with diagnosed pre-existing conditions who, absent reform, would be at risk of being denied coverage in the individual insurance market. It breaks down this number by age, income, and race.
