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.
