You betcha. Before the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) provisions that prevent insurance companies from turning you down or charging you up the wazoo because of a pre-existing condition (including a disability) kick in 2014, you have a number of options:
- If you are 26 or under, you can be covered under a parent’s health insurance. Thanks Mom and Dad!
- If you qualify, you can receive coverage under Medicaid. Check with your state government to know for sure.
- Contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) to get information about and even enroll in your state’s high risk pool/pre-existing condition health plan.
