One aspect of the health care reforms that can be seen now is guaranteed issue child only health care options. Starting Sunday, parents with pre-existing health problems that have trouble getting full family health insurance, or affording a full family plan, will have the chance to get guaranteed issue child only health insurance. Dennis Van Gorp at Van Gorp Insurers says that children are guaranteed to be accepted for a policy regardless of their health or the parent’s health. The deadline for this coverage is August 14th, and there will be another enrollment period next summer. In 2014 the Affordable Care Act will offer this coverage to any family at any time.
