First off, congrats on your new addition! We know that this is a really exciting time, so we want to make sure that adding your child to insurance coverage goes as smoothly as possible.
It's important to add your newborn to your policy within 30 days after their birth! The insurance will be retroactive back to the date of birth so your insurance company will retroactively cover any healthcare costs that should've been covered under the policy.
Note: You cannot add your baby to your insurance policy before birth. Insurance companies will require a date of birth.
When your baby is born, you can add them on your SimplyInsured dashboard by following these steps:
1) Log into your SimplyInsured account and click "Dependent Coverage." You can can access this directly here:
2) Select "Birth" as the qualifying event to add a dependent:
3) Enter your child's personal information including name and date of birth
- Note: The application process will require that you enter a social security number. If you don't have it yet, you can enter "123451234" into that field. Once you receive it, you can send it along to us and we will update the insurance company
