Evidence of Insurability / Pre-existing Limitations
Employees who apply when first eligible are covered on a guarantee issue basis. All new coverage is subject to the “pre-existing condition” limitations described below. Employees enrolling as “late entrants” must submit evidence of insurability satisfactory to The Hartford.
Pre-existing Limitation: A Pre-existing Condition is an injury, sickness or pregnancy for which the employee, in the past three (3) months, before the effective date; received medical treatment, consultation, care, services, prescription medications or had medications prescribed. No benefits would be payable under the plan in connection with a disability that is due to a pre-existing condition unless the employee’s elimination period started after they were insured under the plan for twelve (12) consecutive months.
The following is the Summary Plan Description for all Plans with The Hartford.
