AARP® Essential Premier Health Insurance Plan is the name of the plan provided for AARP members by Aetna Life Insurance Company (Aetna). In some states, individuals may qualify as a business group of one and may be eligible for guaranteed-issue, small group health plans.
To the extent permitted by law, AARP Essential Premier Health Insurance plans are medically underwritten by Aetna, and you may be declined coverage in accordance with your health condition. If declined coverage, you may be federally eligible under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for a special guaranteed-issue plan under your state’s laws and regulations. Health insurance plans contain exclusions and limitations. Investment services are independently offered by the HAS Administrator.
The Federal Health Care Reform Legislation, known as The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, was signed into law on March 23, 2010.
Since then, Aetna has periodically updated the AARP Essential Premier Health Plans, insured by Aetna to include any necessary changes. It is important for you to know that your Plan will always comply with all of the federal health care reform legislation.
