Health Insurance Caps

JAMA. 2009;301(14):1427. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.449

Bills that would raise the lifetime cap on health insurance coverage were introduced in both houses February 13.

The Health Insurance Coverage Protection Act (HR 1085 and S 442 [http://thomas.loc.gov]) would set a $5 million lifetime cap for the first 2 years after the legislation was enacted. That cap would increase to $10 million for the following 2 years, and then the lifetime limit would increase each subsequent year by the percentage increase in the consumer price index.
