Adding your new dependent to your insurance
Planning for the birth of a baby is a busy time in a family’s life. One of the requirements that can be overlooked is updating your health plan to reflect the addition of your newest family member, whether it’s a newborn, adoption or other dependent change event. Not understanding this process and the time restrictions involved can prove costly to a family.
Once your new baby is born, or you adopt a child, you must contact your insurance carrier to add your new dependent. Most insurance companies require to be notified within 30 days of the birth or adoption, but it is best to check with your individual health plan to understand their requirements. Not adding your child to your health plan in time may result in a lapse in coverage and all services provided during that time will be the responsibility of the patient’s parents/guardians. Make sure to contact your insurance carrier with any questions regarding this process.
