Individual health plan enrollment for kids ends April 30

Apr 27, 2011 - 02:37 PM
Want to buy an individual health plan for your child? Don't wait. You must enroll by April 30 or wait for the next enrollment period, Sept. 15-Oct. 31.

The open enrollment periods apply to all health plans in the individual market, according to the state Office of the Insurance Commissioner. People buying individual coverage don't have access to employer-sponsored health plans or their employer doesn't cover dependents. New consumer protections under federal health reform prevent health insurers from denying coverage to children with pre-existing health conditions.  However, just like employer health plans, the individual plans can create open-enrollment periods.

During these times, children under age 19 do not have to complete a health questionnaire and cannot be denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition.
Call (800) 562-6900 for more information.
