Rescission is the retroactive cancellation of health coverage. Under the Affordable Care Act, group health plans and health insurers are prohibited from "rescinding" or canceling your coverage if you made a mistake on your initial application. They can cancel your plan if the information you provided was intentionally false. A group health plan or health insurer must give written notice at least 30 calendar days before coverage may be canceled.
