For All Your Insurance Needs

When Should You Add a Newborn to Your Health Insurance?


Adding a new member to the family? When you are making all those Facebook posts and phone calls to your friends and family, make sure to also contact your health insurance provider. Most carriers require you to add that new bundle of joy to your policy within the first 30 days of life (or date of adoption) to avoid the hassle of a paper application and underwriting approval.
