If I am currently pregnant and find a job that provides benefits, could they still deny coverage because pregnancy is a pre-existing condition?
They won’t be able to deny you maternity coverage. Federal law prohibits group health plans from saying pregnancy is a pre-existing condition.
However, if the employer has a waiting period for its health plan – say, three months, six months – you’ll have to sit out that waiting period like everyone else. It’s something to ask about if you’re offered a job.
