Nationwide programs are very popular in California, but their approval process is fairly slow.  Underwriting of your application can take as little two to three weeks, but if medical records are ordered it is not unusual for the process to take over a month. 

It is standard practice to request a Blood Pressure Inquiry or medical records for all applicants who are currently being treated for or who have recently discontinued treatment for high blood pressure.  Certain conditions may be waivered with a temporary rider (usually for one to two years), or an indefinite rider.

Effective dates:

All Nationwide policies begin the first of the month.  The earliest your coverage can go into effect is the first of the month after your signed application has been received by our office.  You may request an effective date any time as far out as 60 days after you sign your application.

Please note, if you are requesting an effective date of less than 21 days from the time you complete the application, you may not receive notification of your approval until after your effective date.  If you have claims during this period, they will be eligible for coverage if submitted after you have been approved.  Also note that you will be billed starting on your requested effective date, even if you have not yet been notified that you have been approved.  This is very good for someone who does not have any present coverage and would like for their benefits to begin right away.  For those who are already covered, it is suggested that you maintain your current coverage in force until you have received notice from either eCAHealthinsurance or directly from Nationwide that your coverage has been approved and is in force.
