I Want To Change Jobs. Can The New Employer's Plan Deny Me Coverage Because Of A Health Condition?

No. Employees or dependents cannot be denied group health insurance based on their prior medical history. You cannot lose your insurance just because you get sick, or be charged more money based on your health or past insurance claims. This is the general rule. However, many exceptions do apply in different states.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
