[Guidance Overview]
July 21, 2014
"If the plan covers preexisting conditions, it must cover the costs of an insured employee's preexisting pregnancy.... If the plan covers a certain percentage of the medical costs for non-pregnancy-related conditions, it must cover the same percentage of recoverable costs for pregnancy-related conditions. If the medical benefits are subject to a deductible, pregnancy-related medical costs may not be subject to a higher deductible.... [Employers] need not provide the same level of medical coverage to their employees' wives as they provide to female employees."
