Under HIPPAA if a pregnant worker leaves job and within 63 days husband takes a new job with group coverage will it cover the pregnancy preexisting?

Only if she was covered by a qualified group plan and elected

COBRA can she be added to husbands with no lapse in coverage, thus

not pre-existing. You may want to check your state, but my

understanding is you have 90 day to elect Cobra and 90 days to pay,

but you will owe from day one that you were no longer covered on

your previous employers plan.
