Gerber will no longer extend guarantee issue to individuals who are voluntarily leaving an employer- sponsored group health plan except in those states where it is required. Those states are: AR, CA, CO, FL, ID, IL, IA, IN, KS, LA, MO, MT, NJ, NM, OH, OK, PA, TX, VA, WV and WI. Gerber is aligning itself with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) underwriting rules. Changes take effect with applications signed on and after 1 August 2011.
