State Pre-Existing Insurance Plans Improving

The Dept. of Health & Human Services announced improvements today in the new Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan program.  This program, part of the sweeping health care reform law enacted this year, provides states with funds to establish low cost insurance pools for people who can't get affordable insurance due to pre-existing health conditions.  This program provides relief for breast cancer survivors who can't get insurance because of a previous or current diagnosis.

To improve the plan and make it more affordable for consumers, the Obama Administration has directed a 20% cut in these insurance premiums, plus improved plans that lower out of pocket costs.
