Tom Corron – Private Health Insurance Toolkit
Those affected by COPD and Alpha-1, as well as other rare diseases, need to make educated decisions on their coverage options. The selection of an appropriate insurance plan can affect the health and finances of both the Alpha-1 patient and their family. The Alpha-1 Association's Private Health Insurance Toolkit is designed to provide you with the information and resources to help you make the best possible choices in selecting a private health insurance plan.
This resource reflects rules and protections already in place under the Affordable Care Act, including no cost-sharing for certain preventive services and a ban on lifetime limits on benefits.
