The ArizonaMedicaid program offers free health coverage for pregnant women, families withchildren, elderly and disabled individuals with very low incomes.
In Arizona, newborns, adopted children and children placed for adoption are
automatically covered under the parents' health plan for the first 31 days, if the plan
overs dependents. The insurer may require that the parent enroll the dependent
within the 31 days in order to continue coverage.
All group health plans in Arizona must limit exclusion of pre-existing conditions.
There are rules about what counts as a pre-existing condition and how long you must
wait before a new health plan will begin to pay for care for that condition.
Generally, if you join a new group health plan your old coverage will be credited
toward the pre-existing condition exclusion period, provided you did not have along break in coverage.
