Oxford Dictionary defines preexisting condition as “a medical condition existing at a time when new insurance is applied for.”

In the past, having a preexisting condition meant that you had a really hard time getting health insurance. Carriers viewed you as a high expense, so they often denied you a plan OR made you pay them a very high monthly payment for a plan. Bummer, right?

Well, NOT ANYMORE!

With the passing of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, discriminating people with preexisting conditions became a thing of the past!

If you have a preexisting condition, you no longer have to worry about not getting health insurance OR paying a steep price for it. You also don’t have to worry about your insurance not covering your preexisting condition. Your health insurance plan has your back.
