Nestof3 Posted February 2, 2008 Share Posted February 2, 2008 Okay, so my husband and I are considering having another child. We knew that Anthem had a 6-month waiting period after adding maternity coverage, which is fine. It would give us 6 months to really consider it and for my husband's busy time of work to be here (his work is seasonal and he's self-employed) to see if he feels he can take on the added work. I also wanted to spend those six months getting in shape. We called today to add maternity to our personal policy Health Smart. We were told we could not add it until the policy renewal period which is the end of August. We asked about cancelling this policy and starting another, and we were told we could do that, but we would not get the same policy. We would have to go with one with a $55 prescription card fee. Now, if we had not had coverage already, we could have signed up with the same Health Smart plan without the prescription card fee. We aren't even on any prescriptions. We are both very healthy. My husband is almost 49, though, and I am 35, so we didn't want to wait much longer if we were going to have another child. There just seems to be no reason to this. Thanks for listening.
