How Will The Insurance Company Determine My Families Eligibility?
As California is an "accept or reject" state California insurance companies underwrite medical insurance applications and must accept or reject applicants for medical coverage. In the case of a family application the insurance company can:
- accept some family members and reject the rest.
- accept everyone on the application.
- decline everyone on the application.
- accept everyone on the application, but charge a higher rate for the whole family.
- accept everyone on the application, but charge a higher rate for one or more members of the family.
California family medical insurance companies will determine which applicants are eligible for coverage and at which rate based on each family members past and present health and the applicants age.

While underwriting an application, an insurer will gather a families medical records from their doctors or from the MIB and they will generally make their decision to offer coverage or not based on this information. The only two exceptions to this is for HIPPA eligible consumers, and for the new born dependants of an insured. The insurer does not underwrite HIPAA eligible consumers, but instead are required by federal law accept their application for coverage. New born children are immediatly covered on their mothers policy for the first 31 days, during this time the mother must add her new born child to the policy.
