Maternity Coverage Unavailable

By on | No Comments

Question: We own a small business and in Alaska and want to have a baby. There doesn’t seem to be any maternity insurance available though. We do not qualify for the state funded Denali Kid Care. Is there any options for us? Thank you.

Answer: You didn’t mention whether you had health insurance or not. If you do not, get some, that would be the first step. Major medical insurance coverage (without maternity) will cover any extraordinary costs connected with having a baby - pretty much everything beyond prenatal tests and normal delivery. Once you are insured against catastrophic loss, you need to start saving for the predictable costs associated with normal delivery, perhaps $10,000.
