When most women learn they are pregnant, they are excited and want to share the news with family and friends who can lend their support over the nine month journey. But there’s one more person who should be let in on the big news — your health insurance agent.

When it comes to individual health insurance, there is a lot of variance on what types of services are covered and which clinics or health professionals you can see. Often coverage is limited to providers that belong to the health plan’s network.

Many women assume that prenatal and maternity care are a given with their health insurance plan, unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. If pregnancy is a possibility, it is important to go over the basics of what is covered — even if you aren’t necessarily planning to have a baby in the near future.
