Our expert says:
I trust congratulations are in order. Unfortunately if you are off a medical aid for more than 3 months a medical aid has the right to impose a 3 month waiting period and a pre existing condition. So while you are entitled to join a medical aid at any time there are some things that they can do which helps them manage their risk, and in your case I would almost be certain that the pregnancy will be excluded.
If your intention is to join a medical scheme it is better to do it now rather than wait.
