Today we got this question from Amanda regarding maternity in the state of West Virgina.
Comments: Can you please tell me if BCBS is the ONLY provider who offers maternity coverage in WV. I am having a terrible time identifying other carriers who provide maternity coverage. And is WV the only state with this problem?
Thank you kindly,
Actually Amanda, Coventry also offers maternity in West Virgina, but only on 3 plans including the A13, A14, and the Classic Copay 80. Luckily for you, we sell both Coventry and Blue Cross, and I recommend you call our sales floor at 888 803 5917 to help you navigate this complex issue.
Additionally Medicaid also provides maternity coverage as evidenced below.
POVERTY-LEVEL PREGNANT WOMEN AND INFANTS UNDER AGE ONE – Pregnant women and children under age one with family income at or below 150% of the current Federal Poverty Level (FPL). No asset test. Children born to Medicaid eligible mothers remain eligible for 1 year after birth without the need for a Medicaid application when the child remains in the home with the mother.
There is also this document from the West Virgina Health and Human Resources Department on maternity including perinatal care and improving pregnancy outcomes.
