Yes. There are certain instances where a Employer Group plan would have to take you.... Individually in CA you could get MR. MIP or AIM

Many health insurance companies will provide maternity coverage on their policies. It is important that the policyholder specifically request a maternity benefit on a plan if they wish to receive this cover at some later date. Typically, a maternity benefit will be attached to a waiting period. This means that you may have to wait a pre-determined amount of time (usually between 12 and 24 months from the start of the plan) before you are allowed to receive any of the maternity benefits offered by a policy. You may not claim for any treatment related to maternity which you have received during the waiting period. Normal maternity insurance policies will typicall include benefits for the coverage of; * Pre-Natal Treatments * Normal delivery * Complications of delivery * Post-Natal Treatments. A more comprehensive maternity insurance plan may also include coverage for benefits including; * IVF Treatments * New born child care * Congenital birth defect treatment. It is important to note that many insurance companies will treat maternity as a pre-existing condition (hence the waiting period). It is not normally possible to obtain coverage from a maternity insurance plan if you purchase the policy whilst already pregnant.

You should contact your state DHHS (Dept. of health & human services) and apply for Medicaid... You could do it online. I live in Texas and EVERY insurance company has told me that they will not cover the pregnancy/maternity costs b/c it is a preexisting condition. The HIPPA act only covers you if you have insurance already or within the past 63 days.

Yes, if you have a disability insurance policy with a "base benefit" that does not integrate with social insurance benefits.
