Private Health Waiting Periods

Shantel - posted on 09/14/2010 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hi everyone,
My son is now 13 months old and I'm really wanting to give him a little sister. Problem is, our private health waiting period for pregnancy doesn't run out until 21st June 2010 (we're with MBF).

I'm just wondering if anyone knows how it works.
They've told me that as long as my EDD is after the end of the waiting period, everything's fine and they'll pay the claim for the birth, however I'm a little unsure of how things work if something goes wrong during the pregnancy BEFORE the waiting period ends.

EG: I have complications and need care, but bub doesn't actually come - would this be covered by Medicare?

Thanks so much in advance for your help!
