- place of residence
- type of medical insurance plan selected (PPO, HMO, HSA, etc.), including chosen deductible, copay, etc.
- health status
Until January 2014, adult applicants can be declined based on their health status. This happens through a process called medical underwriting. The health insurance carrier will compare your health history, build, tobacco status and occupation against their underwriting guidelines to determine if you qualify for coverage. In some instances, very healthy applicants can receive a 10% to 15% preferred health discount. In worst case situations, if an individual with pre existing conditions can qualify for coverage, he/ she may be rated up as much as 2 to 3 times the standard rate. Additionally, one or more pre existing conditions can also be excluded from coverage.
Whatever your health status, always truthfully answer the medical questions on the health insurance application. Since health insurance carriers often request medical records after claims are submitted, it is relatively easy to determine if the applicant failed to disclose a medical condition that existed before coverage went into effect. This can result in coverage being rescinded or reformed (modified).
- Cover preventive care screening services at no cost
