The Low Down on High Risk Insurance Pools

Very recently the National Association of Sate Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans (NASCHIP) put out a paper explaining the role, necessity and dispelling the myths of high risk insurance pools.

Used by many because pre-existing exclusions prevent individuals from securing insurance from the traditional insurance market, the high-risk insurance pool is sometimes the only remaining health insurance alternative.

Anyone who is in the position to consider approaching one of the State Health Insurance Pools should read the paper. In addition to valuable information, the paper provides a listing of the 35 states that currently have Health Insurance Pools along with the website and contact information for each.
