The most common serious health conditions that qualify for FMLA leave are:
1) conditions requiring an overnight stay in a hospital or other medical care facility;
2) conditions that incapacitate you or your family member (for example, unable to work or attend school) for more than three consecutive days and have ongoing medical treatment (either multiple appointments with a health care provider, or a single appointment and follow-up care such as prescription medication);
3) chronic conditions that cause occasional periods when you or your family member are incapacitated and require treatment by a health care provider at least twice a year; and
4) pregnancy (including prenatal medical appointments, incapacity due to morning sickness, and medically required bed rest).
