You can claim back 20% of the 3k on your med 1. Your health insurance will usually cover your hospital stay (double check your plan). Usually they don't cover anything towards your consultant (sometimes you can get 100 or 200 back). Sometimes you also have to pay for scans eg in Holles St its 110 for the big scan. Other places its included.

Thanks. Didn't know if the 3k covered the hospital stay? Was also wondering when do u let u're health insurance know u're pregnant?

Hi Hope, I let my insurance company know straight away, just in case. They will tell you exactly what is and isn't covered. There are usually little extras that they cover too, like a dietician that you can attend before or after the birth. Good luck and congrats :o)ll
