Finding out your girlfriend is pregnant might be accompanied by feelings of fear and worry, especially if she’s uninsured. However, before you freak out, take a deep breath and relax because, thankfully, there are countless resources available to you and your girlfriend during this time.
Mosaic Pregnancy & Health Centers is here to help guide you through your questions related to pregnancy — from topics like insurance to where to find affordable healthcare!
Will my insurance pay for my girlfriend’s pregnancy expenses?
You may be wondering if your employer-sponsored health insurance program will allow you to include your girlfriend under your plan. Unfortunately, the answer is likely “no.”
Most insurance plans require that you’re married in order to include a partner under your coverage, with some states providing exceptions for common law marriages.
What are her health insurance options?
Even though your girlfriend doesn’t qualify to be covered by your insurance, there are several insurance options she should consider.
First, she might qualify for coverage under Medicaid or COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act). If your girlfriend is under the age of 26, she might still be able to be covered under her parents’ health insurance plan.
If all else fails, there are still plenty of options for affordable healthcare. Mosaic Pregnancy & Health Centers is here to provide you with free pregnancy-related healthcare and point you to additional resources in the community so you can access the care you deserve.
