Utah law allows insurance companies to deny coverage due to a health problem. The exception is individuals who are not eligible for individual insurance through their employment, membership in an association, COBRA, Utah’s continuation coverage, conversion coverage, Medicaid, Medicare, or HIPUtah program; they are guaranteed coverage through Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield (Utah’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Pool for those unable to buy individual health insurance). Standardized policies are regulated. Pre-existing conditions can be temporarily excluded with the imposition of a maximum exclusion period of 12 months, or permanently with the use of an elimination rider. Pregnancy qualifies as a pre-existing condition. Your policy can not be cancelled because you become sick.
