Your Opinion: High-risk pool offers insurance
Friday, May 6, 2011
Please allow me to say something good about the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act.
Health care reform is taking place now. Right now a person with a pre-existing condition, who for six months, has not been able to get insurance, can join a special Missouri health insurance plan.
To find out more about this plan call the Missouri Department of Insurance at 1-800-726-7390 or 573-751-2646. The premium each month will be anywhere from $178 to $780. There are three plans available.
This high-risk insurance pool is being funded by premiums and an $81 million grant to Missouri from the federal government.
This opportunity is available as assistance until 2014 when insurance companies cannot deny access because of pre-existing conditions.
