On October 6, 2011 California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law that starting July 01, 2012 all Individual and Family health Plans (IFP) must cover maternity care regardless the individual need the maternity care coverage such as woman over 50 years old or male applicant. This law also affects those individual with discontinued Individual and Family Plan. Under this law individual no longer has a choice to choose plan without maternity care in order to lower the insurance premium. The insurance company can still decline coverage for those under 19 if the applicant is
- currently pregnant or
- an expectant parent, such as in the process of adopting a child, or planned surrogacy, or spouse/domestic partner is currently pregnant.
