Top Health Insurance Industry Official Says Health Plans Will Follow The Law

In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Karen Ignagni head of America’s Health Insurance Plans and the nation’s top health insurance industry official, said that the industry will fully comply with new regulations preventing coverage denials for children with pre-existing conditions.  The regulations are expected to be issued within the next few weeks.

It is troubling that Ms. Ignagni was in a position where she had say to the federal government that the health insurance industry will follow the rules and not cause problems.  However it is believable that this was required given the recent actions by health plans to haphazardly rescind coverage based upon pre-existing conditions.
