According to my insurance company if you have seen a doctor about the condition it is preexisting.
If the pregnancy began before the first date of coverage - yes it is preexisting.
No, premature birth is not at all a preexisting condition. Premature birth becomes imminent when the doctor thinks the condition of both mother and child would be safe to allow premature birth. In this way it will not be considered as a preexisting condition while applying for Medical insurance.
No, a mammogram is a test used to check for breast cancer, it is not a condition at all. Preexisting conditions are medical conditions you had prior to entering a health plan such as hypertension or diabetes.A mammogram is a test, not a condition as stated. To deny someone medical insurance stating that the mammogram they had was a preexisting condition is just a way these health insurance plans try to reduce the amount they have to pay on claims only wanting you to pay into them.
Yes. In order to have a knee replacement done you must first have a significant amount of damage to the knee joint. That is your preexisting condition. The knee replacement itself was done to replace the damaged joint and may or may not be considered a preexisting condition.

Tests, of any kind, are not included in the definition of preexisting condition. You have to be given a definitive diagnosis from that testing in order to have a preexisting condition. If by having a heart cath test, it was determined that you did not need to have one placed, then you do not have a preexisting condition. For example, you may have an MRI/CAT Scan and then a PET Scan to determine if you have cancer, but if they find you do not have cancer, then you are not diagnosed with a condition, therefore cannot considered preexisting. I should add that, generally if a Dr. wants to evaluate for a heart cath, then you currently have or have had issues with your heart in the past. This may be something like a high percentage blockage, irregular heart beat, thickening of the lining around your heart, etc. This would be considered a preexisting condition and future insurance companies may determine that any intervention needed on your heart would be preexisting. However, insurance companies usually have a preexisting time frame (generally 12 or 24 months) in which a condition is no longer consider preexisting. For example, if you were diagnosed with a heart condition 13 months ago and the insurance company you are planning on joining policy is a 12-month limit on pre-existing conditions, then you are in the clear and the preexisting condition clause does not apply to you.
