Dear Harivansh,

It is not obligatory on the underwriter to offer insurance to the new born. You have to apply for addition of the new born to your health insurance policy after completion of 90 days or at next renewal by paying the due premium. Underwriter then decides about extending the coverage basis medical declaration given by parents in the proposal form that they fill for the new born.

Another point. Most chronic diseases diagnosed as early as within 90 days of birth are usually congenital in nature & health insurance doesn't cover congenital conditions. On the other hand, if the condition is not chronic in nature such as mild infection, fever, etc that lasts for a few days, the child is most likely to pass the underwriter's scrutiny & be given insurance.

I hope this answers your question to some extent.

Best Wishes

Asad Akbar
