Pregnancy as a Qualifying Event

We have had several questions regarding a law recently passed in New York State that gives women who become pregnant the right to a "special enrollment period."  We are still working through the details, but the most important element for us to pass along is that this new law only applies to direct pay (individual) products offered on and off the New York State of Health Exchange.   This does not apply to any group health plans or self-funded groups.
