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 the 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 Plan 3 or 4)


If the mother is insured with the UEX Base Plan 3 or 4 and with the maternity option, in case of complications related to delivery, the newborn and the mother will be covered. 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 Plan 3 or 4, 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 Plan 1 or 2)


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

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

However, these plans cover pediatrician up to SGD 150/year with a Base Plan 1 and SGD 250/year with a Base Plan 2.  


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 Plan 3 & 4

Vaccinations: cover after 90 days waiting period with Base Plan 3 & 4. The limits for vaccinations are up to SGD 900/year with Base Plan 3 and SGD 1,800/year with Base Plan 4.
