Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Health insurance exclusion periods for preexisting conditions; pregnancy. Clarifies that the prohibition on excluding health insurance coverage for pregnancy as a preexisting condition does not apply to eligible individuals purchasing individual health insurance coverage. In such cases, the health insurer may impose a preexisting condition exclusion for a pregnancy that exists on the effective date of coverage. This change is intended to resolve an inconsistency with another provision that currently provides that preexisting conditions may not be applied for eligible individuals for individual health insurance coverage.
