    Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services is the government agency that actually writes these rules, and their website words the paragraph on guaranteed availablility like this:

    Health insurance issuers will be prohibited from denying coverage to people because of a pre-existing condition or any other health factor.   All policies in the individual market will be guaranteed available and will be offered during open enrollment periods.  All policies in the group market will be available continuously year-round.  In addition, individuals will have special enrollment opportunities in the individual market when they experience certain significant life changes, similar to those in the group market today.

    I'm going to sniff around to see if I can find the text of the rule, because I'm curious.... and because it's Friday afternoon and I'm not interested in doing any more work!

    Cheers.
