What Is Maternity Health Insurance?

Anyone with an existing or new Health Insurance plan can include this benefit for themselves or their spouse so that whenever the time arises, all your maternity expenses towards the delivery of a baby and/or treatment-related to any complications in the pregnancy or medically necessary termination can be covered and taken care of by Health Insurance Plan!

Why Does Anyone Need Maternity Health Insurance?

Maternity expense is increasing in India with time and it is a must for a couple to plan for the expenses before they plan for a baby. Whether you’re planning to start a family soon or, give your existing child a sibling to bond with, the phase of maternity, childbirth, and everything that comes with it can often get stressful and if not financially prepared it can add to your stress.

If we talk about the expenses, then the average cost to deliver a baby in most urban cities lies in at least Rs 50,000 to Rs 70,000. On the other hand, the cost of C-section deliveries can go up to 2 lakhs in many urban cities!

Can You Get Health Insurance If You Are Pregnant?

You may avail of health insurance when you are pregnant. But, if you are wondering about when to procure maternity coverage, it is recommended you do not delay your decision.

Most insurance companies do not provide maternity insurance if you are already pregnant. This is because they consider your pregnancy as a pre-existing condition and is beyond the policy cover.

Some policies may also include the cost of termination due to complications.
