The US Health reform law protects people with diabetes
The new reform on health includes many new tools in the fight to stop diabetes in United States.
Once the provisions of the law are fully in place, people with diabetes can no longer be denied insurance or forced to pay more for coverage simply because they have diabetes. Insurance companies will not be allowed to limit benefits or drop coverage when a person needs health care most. In sum, a diagnosis of diabetes will no longer be a lawful reason to deny health care, ending the current system that sanctions such discrimination.
The new laws will protect people with diabetes in fundamental ways.
