Planning both a stay abroad and welcome an addition to the family? Be sure to add international maternity insurance to your health insurance purchase.
Like some individual health plans, many global or international health insurance plans do not cover maternity care or delivery. If you are a woman of childbearing age who is considering getting pregnant while away from home, international maternity insurance is a must.
The price of maternity care can be costly, and delivery alone can be well over $US 15,000. By planning ahead and adding international maternity insurance to your plan, you can keep the costs associated with a healthy pregnancy low and manageable. Many maternity insurance plans also cover the baby for the first 30 days of life, ensuring that your newborn will also be covered for everything from his first check-up to potentially necessary tests or surgeries during his first weeks of life.
Delivering a baby in a foreign country may also be a scary proposition; by investing in international maternity insurance, you can be assured that you have access to a network of quality, reputable doctors, midwives, obstetricians, and other health care professionals that can make your pregnancy and delivery an enjoyable experience for you and your growing family.
