Definitions for common health insurance terms

pre-existing condition

DEFINITION: A pre-existing condition is a medical condition that is excluded from coverage by an insurance company because the condition was believed to exist prior to the individual obtaining a policy from the particular insurance company.

In the individual market, starting in 2014, pre-existing conditions will no longer be excluded, factored into premium calculations, or cause an application to be declined.
