Can an insurance company turn me down for individual health insurance coverage? If a company can turn me down, how can I obtain health insurance coverage?
Yes, you can be turned down. The South Carolina Department of Insurance has no jurisdiction over the underwriting decisions of an insurance company; therefore, we can't require they insure you. If you are turned down for coverage, you can get coverage through the South Carolina Health Insurance Pool (SCHIP). Contact SCHIP at 1-800-868-2500, ext. 46401.
