Protecting Your Health Care Insurance Coverage
Authored By: Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services
Recent changes in federal law now give additional - though limited - protections to you and your family members when you need to buy, change, or continue your health insurance. These important laws can affect the health benefits of millions of working Americans and their families. Understanding these protections, as well as laws in your State, can help you make a more informed choice if you need to make a change in health coverage. It also can help you better understand the health coverage protections you have under the law. HIPAA OnLine is an interactive tool that helps answer questions about your rights and protections under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. HIPAA OnLine guides you to an answer by asking you questions about your health coverage and situation.
