Maternity Waiting period – Medical Insurance Expatriate

Get a Free Quote Now

Maternity waiting periods for medical insurance expatriate plans are common practice. Many medical insurers put a maternity waiting period in place so that women cannot take out medical insurance expatriate maternity cover if already pregnant. Otherwise, insurers would have to pay out for costs that the expectant mother should have made provisions for.

The waiting period is usually more than nine months; in direct relation to the pregnancy period. This prevents women from taking out a policy after they have conceived simply to avoid the maternity costs. However, for women taking out medical insurance expatriate plans, maternity cover is an invaluable option if you are likely to start a family in the future.
