The Health Care Law & You

Key Improvements to Insurance Practices

En español l The health care law gives you more protections. Your insurance company can no longer drop your health coverage when you get sick or place dollar limits on your insurance benefits.

  • Stops insurance companies from dropping coverage: Health insurance companies can’t drop your coverage just because you get sick.
  • Adds more preventive care: Health insurance plans must cover more preventive services.
  • Extends coverage for young adults: Parents can keep their children on their family health plan until they reach age 26.
  • Stops insurance companies from denying coverage because of preexisting conditions: No one can be denied health insurance because of a preexisting condition.
  • Bans lifetime limits: Health insurance plans can no longer put lifetime dollar limits on the benefits you receive.
  • Bans annual limits: Health insurance plans can no longer put annual dollar limits on the benefits you receive.
