Pre-Existing Conditions

During the first nine months NHHP policies will not pay benefits for certain preexisting conditions. Please refer to the preexisting limitation provision of the policy. In determining whether the limitation applies, NHHP will credit the time under prior creditable coverage if that coverage was continuous (with no break over 62 days) to a date not more than 63 days prior to receipt of the application. To get credit toward satisfaction of the preexisting condition period, applicants must submit a certificate or other evidence of prior creditable coverage. No preexisting limitation will apply to individuals certified as eligible for either TAA or PBGC assistance.
