Athens, GA – (WiredPRNews.com) Many do not know all of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act under the new health care reform that has been under scrutiny recently. One provision may actually help those who are divorced, recently widowed, or have undergone other lifestyle changes. In addition, through the divorce process, there is a loss of so many other things that may seem small, but can make a huge impact in anyone’s life.
People across the nation who file for divorce from their spouse may lose their health insurance coverage, along with the other things such as assets that may become divided or taken away completely from one spouse or the other. The insured spouse cannot cover the other, who may not be insured, when the divorce is final. This presents a major problem for the spouse who is either unemployed or not covered, otherwise.
A part of the act can help those with pre-existing conditions and employer-based coverage. This way they can get affordable insurance even after the divorce. A divorce is already difficult as it is, presenting battles over assets or benefits that many would take for granted. Health insurance is so important for Americans today, especially those with pre-existing conditions. This will be one less thing to worry about.
