it really depends of each individual insurance. If the 19 year old is a full time student, she would be fully covered under your insurance. Also, some state laws require parents to cover a dependant child until a certain age (thru age 19 or sometimes even 23).

if the child is covered under the insurance, a pregnancy would be covered.. meaning all prenatal care, post natal for the mother and delivery, including hospital and physician fees. The baby however, will not be covered. The dependant of a dependant is not typically a eligible covered dependant on any insurance plan.

I've seen insurance plans that would cover a 19 year old child dependent, but, when you check the maternity benefit, she won't be covered unless there is a complication with the pregnancy.

If your insurance plan covers her as a dependant or student then she will be covered for her maternity. Most insurance policies will not cover a dependant grandchild, it depends on your individual plan. I have not seen any plans in my company that do. You may need to look into applying for Medicaid for the grandchild.

As stated above if the 19 year old is a qualified dependent then it should be covered **IF** the parents policy covers maternity. Maternity is not automatic coverage in all circumstances and is a benefit that is being made optional with much greater frequency in those states where the insurance company is not obligated to include it.

Is your 24 year old daughter covered for maternity care on your bcbs plan?

It depends on the policy. Only 60% of group plans cover dependent pregnancies. Check with the carrier issuing the policy.

I am the holder of my group insur polic through work. My full time college student daughter is covered. She has since found out she is 5 wks pregnant and has decided to keep the baby. help....?

Answer1) call insurance and find out if they cover "dependent maternity" some do, some don't at all and some don't except for weird situations like c-sections and triplets.2) If they do cover dependent maternity relax a little. Coverage for your daughter will be fine and your grandson will be covered as a normal newborn while he's in hospital.3) Your grandson will need some kind of coverage. Make your daughter get a job with insurance. Wal-Mart, McDonald's, UPS all have part-time jobs with insurance. While you're at it make Dad get a job with insurance as well.It doesn't sound like you feel like it but congratulations! And remember God fully supports more humans.
