Health Reform Ends Lifetime Limits for 2 Million Tennesseans

In a new report on how the health reform law has impacted people, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says that the health reform law has eliminated lifetime limits on coverage for more than 105 million Americans, including approximately 2 million Tennesseans. According to Sebelius, before health reform, many Americans with serious illnesses such as cancer risked hitting the lifetime limit on the dollar amount their insurance companies would cover for their health care benefits.

Other information released for health reform for Tennessee included:

  • Approximately 52,000 young adults received access to health insurance through their parents insurance plan; and
  • Approximately 1 million now have access to preventive services without cost sharing
