Pass It On – a publication put out by NH Family Voices, is a resourceful publication for families having children with special healthcare needs and disabilities.  I have received this publication for many years due to my son’s disabilities.  The issue I just received has a warning in it that I feel is worthy of sharing.

Here’s the article:

“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has recently become aware of a website that has the appearance of being an official government website for the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan.”  


“This new website – http://preexistingconditioninsuranceplan.com/ – is NOT maintained by any government programs and consumers are strongly urged not to submit any personal information requested by this website under the assumption that it is a government website.  CMS is taking the appropriate steps to protect consumers from being misled.”


The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan made available through the Affordable Care Act makes health insurance available to people who have had a problem getting insurance due to a pre-existing condition.


The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan:

  • Covers a broad range of health benefits, including primary and specialty care, hospital care, and prescription drugs.  
  • Does not charge you a higher premium just because of your medical condition
  • Does not base eligibility on income.
