In NY if you have health insurance and have colon cancer but want to switch insurance companies for better coverage does the other insurance company have to take you?
I sure would check before I made the switch. You could be getting into that pesky, ''pre exsisting condition'' thing.......Ask the new carrier first before you switch, (I'd get it in writing).......good luck to you. Actually, in NY health insurers are not allowed to reject you for a pre-existing condition as long as you show continuous coverage with no lapse for a specific period of time. Just make sure that you do not cancel your old policy until the effective date of the new coverage. I have done this many times for my clients. Good luck to you.

'Significant Other' Insurance . I believe that currently no insurance companies HAVE to extend benefits for partners. That is one of the many issues concerning gay marriage… because by legalizing marriage between couples of the same gender, it would give recognition to the spouse. This would therefore require insurance companies to offer insurance coverage for the recognized significant other.. However, that's not to say that forward thinking insurance companies don't exist in the United States. Browse websites for insurance companies in your area, many of them will include information on benefits for same-sex couples. For example, my car insurance company (Geico) offers the same discounted insurance rates given to married couples to myself and my significant other. While they may only be seeing the dollar sign and not the politics, it's nice to know there are companies out there that can be ahead of the curve.. It is not a legal requirement for any insurer to offer such choices. Insurers are not legally bound to insure anyone and can avoid discrimination laws by the use of the company's definition of who qualifies as insurable. This is one of the reason for so many "redlining" suits and similar litigation.. Answer . In some state (like California) there are domestic partners laws that do require extension of benefits. There are precise definitions and guidelines that must be followed however. For instance, if a medical insurance policy is issued in CA then they must offer domestic partner coverage. However, if you work for a company headquartered out of CA and the polciy is issued in that state, even though it is insuring individuals in CA it does not have to extend the coverage since the policy was not issued there.. ï¿½California Insurance Equality Act,ï¿½ provides additional benefits to the registered domestic partners of employees in California and imposes additional benefit requirements on insurance companies. The law requires all health care service plans and health insurance policies, as well as all other insurance policies regulated by the California Department of Insurance, to provide benefits to registered domestic partners of employees equal to the benefits that are offered to spouses of employees.. The law is effective for health care service plans (HMOs) and health insurance policies issued, amended delivered or renewed in California after January 1, 2005, which means the law will be effective for calendar year insured health plans January 1, 2006. However, the law applies to all other insurance policies issued on or after January 1, 2005, so it would apply for the 2005 year for such policies. A.B. 2208 does not apply to self-insured plans or to insurance policies that are not regulated by the California Department of Insurance.
Health Coverage . \nNo they are not. Parents and children must go always go through the appropriate paperwork and procedures for relatives to be added on a health insurance… plan, whether publicly funded or not.
The question is - getting a new company to take you. HIPAA and other laws require that if they do, the time on the old plan count toward the Pre-X waiting period.
The legislation differs depending on which country and region you are in. Some regions/country provide a state-run health insurance, so companies are not required to have one.…
There are many good health insurance companies. Some are indemnity companies and some are managed care, such as HMOs and PPO's. Costs differ depending upon the company, the ch…oices of provider offered, and the number of people to be insured under the policy. There is no "best" health insurer. People like or dislike certain ones based mainly upon their own experiences with claims and customer service. You can get the names of health insurers that are authorized to engage in business in your state by contacting the office of the state insurance regulator. Alternatively, you can contact a local, licensed health insurance agent or broker who represents one or more health insurers. It is extremely important to deal only with "authorized" health insurers. These are those who have been licensed to transact health insurance business in your state. By going through the licensing process, the insurer must demonstrate, among other things, financial soundness.
Some information. They may need to know each other's effective dates so they can coordinate coverage. Insurance companies do not have to give your information to other carr…iers. There is already a BUREAU, much like the credit bureau, where information on those who purchase insurance is stored, as well as claims information. All carriers have access to this information and once an application is made they will go to the BUREAU and obtain more details on your insurance history.
Answer Car Rental Ins: . EXTRA insurance that you have a choice of taking or opting out of when you sign the rental agreement (by checking and initialing the correct boxes) …has been a confusing part of renting for years. It's a big money maker for the rental companies , but it's not always a rip-off . They will try and get you to get extra personal liability,...extra property liability coverage,...a something called CDW. . First, each company must carry liability for their cars that they rent out in every state. So if you're in an accident and it's the other guys fault, his/rental company pays damage. If it's your fault, the rental company pays the other guys damage, but not the damage you've done to the rental. . Second, basically same for personal libility, except if it is your fault, the rental co. personal liab. insurance pays injuries. . Third, always ckeck your own auto policy and credit card agreement (the card used to rent the car), because many times one or the other may offer insurance coverage on your rental. THEREFORE I usually tell people to skip the extra insurance offer by the rental company. They charge per day per type, usually over $10.00 each. By the week that VERY expensive. . Final IMPORTANT note: I've rented a lot of cars and have figued out that the CDW is worth having....WORTH EVERY PENNY. In the first scenierio, if it's your fault, and your credit card provides nothing, or you're using a VISA Debit card....you will owe that rental company ONE car, just like you left the lot with . This is where COLLISION DAMAGE WAVIER (CDW) comes in. (sometime called by a different name). You pay $11 - $ 16 a day extra, EVERYTHING is covered......scratch,.dent,.burn hole in the seat,. food/drink spilled on carpet,.kids write on interior with majic marker....you name it and you DON'T OWE THEM A DIME. AND if you crash it, they give you a brand new one to finish your trip!
