Oklahoma health insurance policy provisions

Some of the most important Oklahoma health insurance laws are the ones that influence the health insurance policy specifically. Unfortunately, Oklahoma is not too restrictive within this realm.

For instance, unlike most states, Oklahoma health insurance laws enforce no limits on pre-existing condition exclusion periods imposed by Oklahoma health insurance companies. However, Oklahoma HMOs can not include any pre-existing exclusion periods within your health insurance policy.

Also pre-existing conditions can be permanently excluded by attaching an elimination rider to a health insurance policy. Conditions are considered to be pre-existing if you received medical treatment for or were diagnosed with them before the beginning of the plan.

Finally, a guaranteed renewability provision is included in every Oklahoma health insurance policy issued. This provision states that, as long as premiums have been met, your Oklahoma health insurance company cannot deny you continued coverage.

Regulating Oklahoma health insurance companies

Like laws regulating Oklahoma health insurance policies, the rules Oklahoma health insurance companies must follow in regards to price and policy aren't too restrictive either.

For one, any Oklahoma health insurance company can refuse your application for health insurance. In considering your application the health insurance company can also take into account your health and charge you more if your health is determined to be a liability

However, once you purchase an Oklahoma health insurance policy, your insurance company must honor your request to renew your health insurance policy.
