As a result of President Obama's federal waiver, insurance commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart entered into a dialogue with the health insurance carriers in an effort to provide earlier renewals of existing health insurance plans.
An agreement has been reached with the carriers to offer early renewals for current policies whose term of coverage was to end on or before March 31, 2014. Consumers that are affected by this agreement and take advantage of this option must renew their policy on or before Dec. 31. All policies with an effective date after Jan. 1, 2014 must be in compliance with Delaware law.
The carriers have indicated that individuals with questions regarding their policies should direct those questions to their agent or broker.
