Googling has brought up conflicting answers, so I’m hoping I can get some straight dope on this:
We just found out my fiancee is pregnant! She is currently unemployed and uninsured. However our wedding is next week and after we are married I’d like to add her to my plan through my work. I have read that pregnancy by law can’t be treated as a pre-existing condition when adding a new spouse on a group plan- is this the case? Is there typically a waiting period before coverage can begin? If it matters, I live in Texas and the plan is UHC. I’d prefer not to have to ask these questions to my employer or insurance company yet, at least until I have some idea what the facts are. Thanks!
