Health insurance policies offer coverage for maternity expenses, however the coverage varies as per the policy. It's crucial to review the details of insurance policy to be aware of what maternity expenses are covered.
Some common types of coverage for maternity expenses in health insurance policies includes:
Pre and Post Hospitalization Expenses - It's important to note that pre- and post-hospitalization expenses may not be covered by most maternity plans. To ensure you have a clear understanding of the coverage details beforehand, it's crucial to ask your provider
The coverage for maternity plans typically includes hospitalization charges, room rents, coverage for two pregnancies, pregnancy complications such as eclampsia, ectopic pregnancy, and miscarriages (depending on the policy and provider selected), and expenses related to C-section and/or normal delivery.
New Born Treatment - Coverage for newborn treatment expenses varies among insurance providers. If your policy provider offers financial assistance, then you can avail optional perks such as coverage for congenital illnesses, hospitalization benefits, and vaccinations.
It's important to review the details of your health insurance policy to understand what is covered and what is not covered, and to plan accordingly for any out-of-pocket expenses that may arise. It's also a good idea to discuss your insurance coverage with your doctor or midwife to ensure that you are fully prepared for the financial impact of having a baby.
