New Insurance Option

September's The Moisture Seekers edition is, as usual, jammed full of great information. It's published by the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation and is only one of the benefits of becoming a SSF member.

The article entitled The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan - New Coverage Option for the Uninsured in this edition is particularly interesting. It provides the details for the new Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan:
This transitional program is available for children and adults in all 50 states and the District of Columbia who have been locked out of the health insurance market because of a pre-existing condition........To qualify, you must: be a citizen of the United States or reside here legally, have been without health coverage for at least 6 months before applying, and have a pre-existing condition or have been denied coverage because of a health condition. For more information, including program benefits, eligibility and how to apply, visit There is also a Call Center for the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan.
