State notes changes in insurance law

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Department of Commerce and Insurance has reminded consumers about changes in the so-called Medigap law. The department posted a bulletin this week pointing out that eligibility has expanded. Beginning in January, under an amendment to a state law, insurance carriers who offer Medigap plans to individuals 65 and older must also offer those same plans to eligible individuals under 65. Anyone under 65 must be eligible for Medicare due to a disability or end-stage renal disease to qualify. Copyright 2010 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
