no, since you were not paying premiums at the time of those occurrences. however, current illnesses are covered to the extent of the policy (maybe after co pays and deductibles)

The new insurance policy will only help with medical expenses that happen AFTER the date the policy started.
What you are asking is basically the same as trying to use a new auto insurance policy to pay for an accident that happened while you had a different auto insurance policy.
No insurance will pay for expenses that happened before the start date of the policy.

Not if the date of service was before your policy date.

No Insurance only pats for loss incurred during the policy period.

No. The services were provided before you were covered by your new health insurance, thus your new health insurance provider will not pay for them.

Only if you incurred it after the insurance was in effect

No. Insurance has to be in effect at the time you incur an expense for it to cover that expense.

No. One is a debt. The other is coverage going forward.
That would be no different than your house burning down, THEN getting fire insurance and expecting that company to pay for the damages that already happened.
