Individual PPO to employer
Jul 2, 2007

I have an individual PPO plan through Blue Cross that I've had for over five years, becuase my employer is small and has no health plan.

Last year I tested HIV+ and have since started treatment. I've read a number of responses about transferring plans from one employer to the next - generally do those answers also apply to my situtaion on an individual plan as well?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

I'm not sure I understand your question. If you are referring to Q&A's regarding changing plans and pre-existing conditions under HIPAA that is with respect to group plans not individual plans.
