Long Term Care policies
Aug 14, 2013

When Obamacare kicks in 2014 insurance companies aren't supposed to discriminate on the basis of pre-existing conditions. My partner and I are both in our mid-50's and positive. Would we be able to get a policy?

Response from Mr. Chambers

I'k sorry to say that the Affordable Care Act only deals with health insurance that helps pay for medical bills. It does not apply to Long Term Care, Disability policies, or Medicare Supplement (Medigap) policies.
