Maternity Health Insurance Coverage

Motherhood is one of the most important phases of a woman's life. With the anticipated arrival of the newborn(s), a woman not only needs to take special care of herself but also a health insurance plan which is designed to provide maternity benefits. A maternity health insurance plan covers the expenses faced by a woman in her pregnancy.

Times have changed and so have the women. Earlier, the average age of women embracing motherhood was 26 to 27 years but now it can go up to 32 to 33 years and even more. As age increases some women experience complications that can be easily tackled when you have maternity insurance in place.

To make the right choice and get the best care for both mother and baby, here are some facts which you should know: -

Comprehensive Coverage

Maternity health insurance covers the expenses faced by a woman when she is pregnant. These expenses cover pre-hospitalization (30 days) and post-hospitalization (60 days), delivery expenses, pre- and post-natal expenses, and baby cover.
