ADOPTED BABY NEEDS FAST COVERAGE
Q: I need coverage for a child that I am adopting in South America. How soon can I get proof of coverage and when will the coverage be effective?
A: If you enroll online at MedSave.com using the "Liaison International" policy on the International Health Insurance page, the coverage will be effective and proof of insurance will be issued the same day. (Other policies take longer for confirmation). Coverage becomes affective immediately after midnight. You could sign up for a 30-60 day policy to allow time for regular U.S. coverage to start. Keep in mind that U.S. policies require you to enroll the baby within 30 days after adoption in order to guarantee eligibility.
