These limitations and exclusions apply even if a health care practitioner has performed or prescribed a medically appropriate procedure, treatment or supply. This does not prevent your health practitioner from providing or performing the procedure, treatment or supply; however, the procedure, treatment or supply will not be a covered expense.

A Pre-Existing Condition is a condition for which medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment was recommended or received within six months prior to the person's Enrollment Date under this Plan. Genetic Information is not, by itself, a condition. Treatment includes receiving services and supplies, consultations, diagnostic tests or prescribed medicines. In order to be taken into account, the medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment must have been recommended by, or received from, a Physician. The Pre-Existing Condition does not apply to Pregnancy.
