Is there a certain timeframe one should follow if changing jobs/insurance after receiving medical coverage for a C-section?

I gave birth via C-section 3 weeks ago and have health insurance through my husband’s company. My husband is now thinking of leaving his job but I was wanting to make sure our previous medical bills will be covered. Is there a certain timeframe we need to follow in order to make sure the C-section is covered?

If you had the C-section, the medicals should already be covered by his employment and insurance coverage at the time of the C-section.  However, any medical appointments for follow-ups, or for your child (you only have a certain amount of time to get your child on as an added insured) may not be covered should your husband choose to leave now. If there is no immediate rush or if he will be going to a new company, I would make sure the insurance coverages cross over so you are protected.
