While a majority of the more comprehensive Health Care Reform changes won’t take effect until 2014, there are other provisions that were recently implemented at the end of September that are worth noting. Aetna Insurance released a summary of these changes titled How 2010 Changes May Impact You. You might want to take a look as these to see what impacts you.
Some of the changes in benefits addressed in Aetna’s summary include: Lifetime Limits, Annual Maximums, Preventative Services, Extension of Dependent Coverage, and Prohibition on Pre-Existing Condition Exclusion for Kids. That last one is a biggie for any parents of minor children out there!
As we get more updates, we’ll be sure to post them here. In the meantime, take a look at Aetna’s summary to see if there’s anything that impacts you right now.
