The article presents an analysis on the implication of a ruling by the New York Court of Appeals that a pre-existing condition provision is not an absolute bar to coverage. The court held that the statute was interpreted to allow insurers to toll benefits during the months of coverage. It has been claimed that the ruling is vital for insureds covered under group disability policies issued in the state.
