Re: Does your insurance charge seperate deductible for baby at birth?

A previous poster mentioned that her deductible covered baby's room and board, but not the pediatrician, hearing test, etc. Does your company work that way, or does the whole stay get covered under mom?

I actually work in a hospital and sit near the insurance verification ladies...so I hear them say baby is covered under mom's policy for 30 days in most cases...but I never really though that meant you didn't have to pay seperately for baby. It woudl be such a releif if that happened!
