Question: How can I get health insurance for a newborn child when mother is unmarried.
Answer: The marital status of the mother is not a factor. You can purchase child-only health insurance coverage for this newborn baby. If you are a grandparent or other interested party, you can be responsible for paying the premiums. Health insurance rates for infants under 1 year old are higher and this is understandable, because all health insurance plans now include well-child baby visits and routine exams that include blood tests and other diagnostic tests.
