Baby on the way! Does my health insurance cover my newborn?

09 Apr 2019

Will you soon be a parent? Do you already think about all the administrative procedures that you will have to do after birth? Health insurance is on the list!

Before giving birth, it is important to check that your newborn will be well covered by your health insurance.

At UEX, the mother’s health insurance also covers the newborn but under certain conditions. But what are those conditions? Let’s dig deeper to understand the various situations possible:

 

If you are already a UEX member with an international cover (Base 4 or 5)

 

If the mother is insured with the UEX Base 4 or 5 and with the maternity option, in case of complications related to delivery, the newborn and the mother will be covered (once the waiting period is over). It is the best situation!

In that case, it’s easy:

Your baby will be covered from his date of birth onwards if you add him on the mother’s policy within 30 days after the baby’s birth. The coverage will be with the same conditions as the mother, so with an international cover.

If we focus on the baby’s needs:

If you don’t have the maternity option but have a Base 4 or 5, the baby can be added to your policy but only after 15 days after his date of birth.

 

To add the baby to your cover, contact your UEX advisor. Don’t forget to prepare the birth certificate as it will be required.

 

If you are already a UEX member with a local cover (Base 1,2 or 3)

 

If the mother or the father is a UEX member with an existing UEX local policy (Base 1,2 or 3), the baby can be covered by UEX but only after 15 days after his date of birth.

Please do note that Base 1,2 and 3 are local coverage. They do not cover vaccination at all.

However, these plans cover up to the specialist consultation limit.  

 

If you are not a UEX member

 

If you are not a UEX member, you cannot cover your newborn right after his birth, you will have to wait 15 days after his date of birth. Then, you can either :

Pediatrician: fully covered and no letter of referral needed under Base 4 & 5

Vaccinations: cover after 90 days waiting period with Base 4 & 5. The limits for vaccinations are up to SGD 900/year with Base 4 and SGD 1,800/year with Base 5.
