View Full Version : J1 and maternity

09-13-2016, 02:08 PM
I have a client which will come to work for a university in August, in Illinois. Ages are 31, 34 and 1 child age 4.

They need it for about 2 months, until they get the group plan from the university.

They wanted to get maternity coverage, in case that they need it. I could not see plans when selected the maternity option.

Please advice

If the individual is already pregnant there is not a plan that will cover her. Conception will have to happen after the effective date some plans require at least 90 days after policy start date.

The J1 will of course have to be on the policy for the J2 to receive coverage .

Review the Study USA and the Student Health Advantage plans for coverage if she is not already pregnant.
