Before your baby arrives, it’s a good idea to get familiar with the benefits available during your pregnancy. Here are a few key things to know:
- Pregnancy care, such as pre/postnatal office visits and in-hospital delivery, is covered the same as any other medical condition.
- Inpatient hospital stays are covered for a minimum of 48 hours following a vaginal delivery or a minimum of 96 hours following a C-Section delivery. If a person is discharged earlier, benefits will be payable for two post-delivery home visits by a health care provider.
- You need to certify an inpatient stay greater than 48 or 96 hours. Otherwise, you may experience a reduction in benefits.
- If your job requires overnight travel, the company will reimburse for shipment of breastmilk as a travel expense. See the Business Travel & Entertainment policy on EPOCH for details.
