Unum Offers Guide on Health Reform Law

June 24, 2010 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - Unum has produced a guide that details important changes required by the new health reform law and their impacts.

Included in the white paper are explanations of health coverage reforms including:  

  • Elimination of pre-existing condition exclusions, 
  • Elimination of coverage rescissions (except in the case of fraud), 
  • Required coverage for certain essential benefits, and 
  • Elimination of annual and lifetime maximums for many benefits. 


The guide is the second in a series of educational pieces from Unum on the effects of health care reform. Last month, the company produced another guide explaining the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act, a national voluntary plan that offers a minimal long term care benefit.
