Is pregnancy a pre-existing condition if you're moving from a country with national health insurance?
Hello! The husband and I feel ready to have a kid -- yay!
Here's the rub. Right now we live in the UK, but we're planning to move to the US before nine months is up. We'd have group health insurance in the US, but if I were pregnant before we left, would I be excluded on pre-existing condition grounds? Right now we obviously don't have insurance in the UK except for the national health service. Would this count? And does it matter what state we move to?
Extensive googling has not come up with answers. All info & advice would be much appreciated!
