21 Jul Insurance Coverage for Surrogates
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has issued a decision in a case that we previously reported on in September 2009. The court held that an insurer may not deny maternity coverage for surrogates "based solely on the insured's reasons for becoming pregnant or the method used to achieve pregnancy."
The effect of this decision is that insurance policies in Wisconsin which provide maternity coverage may not exclude coverage for surrogates or gestational carriers, regardless of the wording of the policy.
