ACA still leaves gaps in coverage

Despite health insurance changes under Affordable Care Act, many coverage holes still exist. What's more, Americans have been finding new holes in their coverage, LifeHealthPro reported. Coverage gaps could hit healthy people who don't qualify for the exchange plans, such as people who tried to buy exchange coverage but don't know if they already have it. Those people who paid for exchange coverage a little late also could face gaps in coverage ranging from one day to about six weeks, LifeHealthPro noted. And with insurers narrowing their networks in exchange plans, Americans who travel frequently and don't want to buy travel insurance could discover coverage holes if they need provider services on the road.
