Do you think a mother to be should be able to go on to the father to be's medical if they arent married just to cover the PREGNANCY??? this is a repost, didnt get many answers before

I think this would take alot of women off of medical assistance... And make it so they would have to pay atleast something. I have no income and to have my baby i paid atleast 2000.00 in bills that wasnt covered by medical... SO paid for it considering I wouldnt have the bills if he hadnt got me pregnant, and he didnt mind anyways

  • It is a good idea, it would just be hard to regulate it. Like if someone had a 1 night stand and was pregnant her good guy friend with great insurance could just say that it was his baby for her to be covered. (which wouldn't bother me, but "legally" it would be hard to regulate)

  • No I don't. Dependent coverage is for families. Getting knocked up out of wedlock does not count. If you want to be on your baby's dad's medical, get married to him. Otherwise, take responsibility for your actions and get your own insurance.

  • Actually if the insurance is gotten through the employer, it would be the EMPLOYER's fault for not picking the rider for Domestic Partnership. Nothing to do with the insurance company.

  • In AZ, domestic partners can be covered on each others insurance. So I have employees that have their girlfriends on their insurance. I see no problem with it.

  • The mother is pregnant, not the father.

    The father should not have to cover the mother's pregnancy if she is not covered under his insurance.

    "...if he hadnt got me pregnant..." OMG! YOU had sex, too!! you are just as much at "fault" for the pregnancy, it's not all on him!
