Policies Available for Children 18 and Under With No Exclusions for Preexisting Conditions

January is open enrollment for CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic States individual health insurance policies for children.  During January, these two companies will offer policies for children age 18 and under with no exclusions for preexisting conditions.  This is an opportunity for those families that do not have access to family policies to find coverage for their children. 

If an application is received by one of these companies on or before January 15, 2012, the policy will be effective February 1, 2012.  If the application is received between January 16, 2012 and January 31, 2012, coverage may be delayed until February 16, 2012.  The next open enrollment period will not take place until July 2012.
