If you give birth in a car....

is it covered by your auto or your health???

I know when I crushed my finger in my car door, my health insurance wouldn't cover it and it had to be covered by my auto.

  • Is what covered? There's no delivery fee if the doctor doesn't deliver the baby.

    I don't know if the auto insurance would clean the mess.

  • Well, you'd be receiving medical care at the hospital, so it would be covered under health insurance. Same as if you went for any sort of injury or illness.

  • I now have the answer, thank you google, LOL
    You had a pre-existing condition that you had most likely sought treatment for before, the cause was not the auto, but the condition you were already in at the time, so health!

  • LOL, I would assume health? Why would your insurance make your Auto pay for it? I hope that isn't the case, I have a very high deductible on my auto, LOL!
    Does this mean if you mash your finger in the door of your home, your home owner's has to take care of it? If that is the case I am screwed!

  • What do you have to cover? If you delivered in a car, the delivery is free. You just have to clean up the mess.

  • Well, if you're injured in a car accident it's covered by auto even thought you receive treatment at a hospital. But I don't think having a baby is the same thing as being in a car accident. Lol. The birth had nothing to do with the car. Home births aren't covered by homeowners insurance.

  • All that would be done that would be charged would be by health professionals, so it would be covered under your health insurance.

    If you delivered a baby at home, home owners insurance isn't going to pay for anything. Or if you delivery a baby in Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart sure as heck isn't going to pay for anything.
