Is pregnancy considered a pre-existing condition.
Response from Ms. Franzoi
Pregnancy can be included as a pre-existing condition. However, as with any other pre-existing condition, the HIPAA rules would apply so prior coverage would have to be counted towards the pre-existing condition exclusion period unless you had gone more than 63 days without coverage.
