 Waiting Period

 
A period of time (often 12 months) beginning with your effective date during which your health insurance plan does not provide benefits for pre-existing conditions. This period may be reduced or waived based on any prior health care coverage you had before applying for your new health insurance plan.

Insurance companies reserve the right to change the terms of a policy after properly notifying you. Please note that definitions of certain terms may vary across insurance companies.
