I sure would check before I made the switch. You could be getting into that pesky, ''pre exsisting condition'' thing.......Ask the new carrier first before you switch, (I'd get it in writing).......good luck to you. Actually, in NY health insurers are not allowed to reject you for a pre-existing condition as long as you show continuous coverage with no lapse for a specific period of time.
