Hi does anyone know anything about Vivas plans. I was looking at the "I" plan level 2. I am planning on TTC in a couple of months and would like cover for a private room in a public hospital. This plan seems to have good extra benefits. There is a waiting period of 1 year - from when do they count - conception or birth ie. if i joined now and gave birth next Feb would i be covered ??? Thanks for any info, i cant ring from my office cos people will overhear.
