Newborn Health Insurance Enrollment
How do I enroll my child in my health insurance?
Within 30 days after your baby’s birth, you will be required to separately enroll your baby in an insurance plan.
Most insurance plans that offer maternity benefits will include well-baby care under the mother’s plan for the first 30 days following birth. We recommend you contact your insurance provider directly to find out what the regulations are on health insurance coverage for your baby. The Human Resources Benefits department at your workplace may also be able to assist you with this information.
It is your responsibility to notify the Admitting staff at Providence of any and all insurance plans you may have for yourself and your baby.
It is also very important to notify Admitting of any changes in your insurance plans. The hospital has specific deadlines for notifying insurance providers about your admission as well as notifying them on the birth of your baby. If we do not have correct and complete information, your insurance may not cover the services provided and you may be responsible for any incurred charges.
