Can I Be Forced To Wait For Coverage To Begin If I Am Sick At The Time I Buy Individual Insurance?

Other than in CHIP, there are no limits on preexisting condition exclusion periods under individual health plans in Nebraska.

Finally, individual plans can also impose preexisting condition exclusion periods on pregnancy and on genetic information.
