My Insurance Is Denying A Claim Because They Say Its A Pre-Existing Condition. Can They Do That?

Maine has a continuity law that applies to group and individual health insurance. If you haven't had coverage, then a 12 month exclusion period may be imposed. However, if you are switching coverage, the new company cannot add an exclusion for something that was covered under the old policy.

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.
