Health Insurance for Adopted Child

By on | No Comments

Question: My wife and I are in the process of adopting a baby girl from China.We live in Escondido, California. We need to get her some health insurance but the application form for Blue Cross is asking for all kinds of information we just don't have. We don't even know her height and weight at this point! What do you suggest?

Answer: You will first need to bring your daughter in to the country before you can make an application. Once she is here you will have all the information that Blue Cross needs for the application. If you already have coverage with them you should call Blue Cross ahead of time and ask for an 'Add Dependant' application form. If the adoption process requires that she is covered immediately upon entering the country it may be a good idea to ask the adoption agency for information because the Blue Cross application could take a while to be processed.
