Re: Insurance doesn't cover prenatal or maternity care...what are my options?
Yes, dependent on income you might qualify for pregnancy insurance. We didn't qualify for medicaid normally, but I was able to get FAMIS for pregnancy, and the baby is covered until 1 year of age.
The only thing about that is that I wanted a birth center or homebirth (had a homebirth), and the insurance wouldn't cover it, so I ended up paying OOP after all. The birth and prenatal care was only 3600$, though, so still cheaper than paying for insurance.
