Recently hired w/pre-existing condition
Oct 29, 2002

I am pregnant and I am getting hired on permanent, can new insurance deny me? I have not have insurance since June/July 2002, will this effect me in anyway????

Response from Ms. Franzoi

If the health plan has a pre-existing condition clause, your pregnanacy would be considered a pre-existing condition. Check the health plan to see if it has a pre-existing condition clause and if so, for what period of time medical services related to your pregnancy will not be covered.
