The Affordable Care Act remains the law of the land and we are continuing to carefully and effectively implement this law to improve the health of all Americans. The Affordable Care Act created the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan, which is available to people who are U.S. citizens or residing here legally, have a pre-existing condition or have been denied health coverage because of their health condition, and have been without health coverage for at least 6 months. This program will be available until 2014. In 2014, you will have access to affordable health insurance choices through a new competitive marketplace called an Exchange. An Exchange will provide a transparent and competitive insurance marketplace where individuals and small businesses can buy affordable and qualified health benefit plans. Exchanges will offer you a choice of health plans that meet certain benefits and cost standards. In addition, starting in 2014, it will be against the law for an insurance company to discriminate against you based on a pre-existing condition. We recognize how important the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan is to you and will let you know if there are any changes that could affect your coverage.
