Massachusetts Insurance Company Restrictions

Massachusetts Insurance companies can not deny coverage to any individual or charge higher premiums on the basis of their current health. They also do not have the right to raise insurance premiums based on an individuals age or if their health has declined. An insurance company can not cancel a policy on this basis.

Massachusetts natives can sign up for temporary health insurance. This coverage provides health insurance for a specific amount of time. This policy can be limited to exclude pre-existing conditions. It can also be cancelled by the insurance company at their discretion.
