Freedom Benefits repeats a reminder that whenever health insurance changes occur, the details of the coverage is best obtained directly from the quoting and enrollment link. When plan changes are made inevitably some previously published information becomes outdated.

We recommend using the "coverage without boundaries" online tool as the starting point to see the available coverage options. This is not a flashy Website but provides the important information in an easy to understand format.
