Insurance policies will not cover anyone but those legally related (by blood, adoption, or marriage) to you as the policyholder. If you are interested in understanding this matter more, keep reading to gain the knowledge and answers you seek.

How Does My Insurance Work?

Insurance policies will help cover the financial and medical expenses of the primary policyholder and their legal dependents, who are also listed on the account. For policyholders to add dependents, there must be a legal connection to the policyholder, such as a spouse or child.

Policyholders must supply the insurance company with the appropriate documents validating the event and relationship when a legal connection occurs, such as marriage, adoption, or childbirth. At this point, a person is added to the policy and is considered a “dependent.” 

For the birth of a child, there is usually a grace period during which the policy covers the child for a small amount of time before the policyholder must submit birth documents.   

How Can I Help Protect Her Health Before An Abortion?

According to the Mayo Clinic, abortion pills aren’t always the answer, and some women’s health will not qualify for this medication. Some who should not take this drug include those who:

  • Are too far along in your pregnancy
  • Have an IUD.
  • Have an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Have certain medical conditions, including bleeding disorders; certain heart or blood vessel diseases; severe liver, kidney, or lung disease; or an uncontrolled seizure disorder.
  • Take blood thinners or certain steroid medicines.
  • Can’t receive follow-ups or don’t have access to emergency care.
  • Have an allergy to the medications.

A trusted physician or women’s clinic should be consulted first to help protect a woman’s health and safety and to discuss questions and concerns. Additionally, women should:

  • Receive a complete physical exam.
  • Give a list of currently used medications.
  • Provide an in-depth health history, including all current conditions.
  • Confirm a pregnancy through a quality medical pregnancy test and ultrasound imaging.
  • Receive education/information on the risks of an “abortion pill” in order to make a safe, informed decision.
