  • Third, on August 28, 2014, Covered California sent out notices to health plan enrollees asking permission to automatically verify their income for the coverage year 2015. To avoid any confusion, let me give you the bottom line! The page that is titled “Renewal of Insurance Consent Form” is what really needs to be addressed immediately. ****Our recommendation is that you either send us an email with your selection so that we have it writing to be filed, or fax us the completed form you received so that we can update your account immediately.

People with inherited diseases, for example, would not be penalized for heredity conditions  or denied coverage. Healthcare reform brings certain fairness to the system.

In March 2010, the United States Congress succeeded in an attempt to pass a reformation of healthcare. It was an unparalleled success compared to it predecessors. However, the legislation continues to cause concern as to whether healthcare reform will provide improvements to the heath care system.

Most individuals living in developed countries support improvements within any healthcare system. People with certain conditions find healthcare insurance difficult and often impossible to  obtain. This is a reflection of the high cost for medical treatments. Health insurance is a product designed to protect some individuals and is paid by all others insured. That is the purpose.
