White House to release details of Obama health plan today

RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR,Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Most insurance plans will soon be prohibited from rejecting coverage of children because of pre-existing medical problems, under rules governing enforcement of the 'patients bill of rights' in the new health care law.

The White House later Tuesday will release details of how the patients' provision will be implemented.

The language involving coverage of children with pre-existing conditions will be enforced for most insurance plans renewing on or after Sept. 23.

Under the new federal rules, patients also can still pick their primary doctors or pediatricians, and prior approval requirements for emergency care will be prohibited.

The rules apply to most health plans, except in cases where they are "grandfathered" under the law.
