Important information about pre-existing conditions
Although we make every effort to extend coverage to all applicants, not everyone will qualify. People who've been diagnosed with certain conditions may be denied coverage. Coverage may also be denied to people who are undergoing or awaiting the results of diagnostic tests, treatments, surgery, biopsies, or lab work. In addition, coverage can't be provided to expectant parents (male or female), to children younger than 2 weeks old, or to adults older than 64.5 years. The pre-existing condition limitation does not apply to a covered person who is under the age of 19. This exemption does not apply to Short Term Medical Plans.
Other eligibility requirements may apply.
