UnitedHealthcare announced it will keep in place several consumer provisions mandated by the Affordable Care Act regardless of the Supreme Court decision, which is expected sometime this month. The insurer will continue to provide customers preventative health-care services without co-payments or other out-of-pocket charges, allow parents to keep adult children up to age 26 on their plans, and maintain a streamlined appeals process. UnitedHealthcare will also continue to observe the law’s prohibition on putting lifetime limits on insurance payouts and rescinding coverage after a member becomes ill. The provisions are part of the law referred to as “the Patient’s Bill of Rights” and apply to roughly nine million people covered under a UnitedHealthcare plan.
