Who Is Eligible?


Pre-Existing Coverage / Statements

Our plans do not cover certain expenses related to pre-existing conditions for new participants. This includes illnesses or injuries for which you receive medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, prescriptions or care during the 90 days before your coverage effective date or the beginning of your waiting period, whichever starts first. Eligible expenses for pre-existing conditions will be covered after you have been in our medical plan for 12 months.

However, if you were covered under another group health plan just prior to joining the United Supermarkets medical plan, your pre-existing condition waiting period may be reduced or eliminated. To prove prior coverage, you must submit your Certificate of Group Health Coverage from the prior plan for processing. This certificate shows the length and type of your prior coverage. Your previous coverage provider is required to give you this certificate.

This pre-existing condition exclusion does not apply to dependent children under the age of 19.
