  •  That gets fixed at annual renewal. (14+ / 0-)

    Your friend's concerns are a bit unnerving, but I have seen Health Care plan changes adopted by my insurer.  My 21 year old daughter had been dropped from coverage, but now, due to the health care reform, she's covered again!  

    I think the same will apply for no-copay contraceptives.  At least hoping so.

    •  that's so good that she has coverage now (1+ / 0-)

      your daughter was covered because that change (covering children up to 26? years) applied to all plans irrespective of grandfathered status. But the change for free preventative services does not apply to grandfathered plans, and routine annual renewals do not effect the grandfathered status. I pasted two links below which flush out some of the details (i.e. what changes do not apply to grandfathered plans and how health plans lose their grandfathered status).

    •  Yes, that's how new provisions are done. (0+ / 0-)

      I used a colonoscopy provision for preventative care in the ACA but it didn't start until the next open enrollment cycle, so I waited until then.
