I am still debating on whether or not to return to work after the baby comes. I don't think I'll make up my mind until after she's born, while I am on maternity leave. What I'm wondering is, are there any standards for discontinuing insurance coverage when an employee leaves? For right now, my insurance will still cover me through my whole leave, assuming I come back. If I don't return to my job, will they still cover me through my entire maternity leave, just until the baby is born, or backdate it all the way to the last day I worked?
Does anyone know if there any legal standards on this, or is it totally up to the company how they want to handle it?
