We missed the cut off date to get coverage throughmy dh work by 2 days! I thought you signed up in Dec and started in Jan, turns out you sign up in Nov, they start pulling money in Dec and covg starts in jan. ugh. We don't qualify for medicaid bu $341 a month. Sooo looks like this preg/oops is coming out of pocket (by the way JUST shelled out $600 for Dh a vas....made the appt as soon as I got BFP and we emptied out savings for it). Has anyone ever had to do this? How does it work? Were you paying for the baby forever? Did you get good medical care and things like u/s?

I don't think so. I called and talked to the woman about the situation b/c Coverage starts in Jan and I am due Jan 8th so I was thinking maybe the Hosp stay could at least be covered but thats when I thought covg started in Dec, Jan is cutting it WAY too close! She said there was nothing she could do.
$12000...really?! OMG! I may hypervintilate now!

Did you look into any discount programs? When I was pregnant with my first I didn't have insurance and was not sure if I qualified for medicaid. I remember there being discount cards or programs you can enroll in. I am not sure how much they cost or if they are a rip off, but it is something you can look into. Good Luck.
