I swear this is going to drive DH and I into bankruptcy!
Every time I go to my high risk doctor (every 2 weeks) it costs me 40 dollars copay each time! Then I pay a 25 dollar copay per month for my pills, then 30 dollars a month for my prenatals, then 50 dollars a month for my insulin, then 75 dollars a month for my test strips.
Thats a grand total of 260 a month thats on top of the 180 I pay FOR the insurance... thats a total of 440 a month. Good thing our cars are paid off.
I really wish I could just have a REGULAR pregnancy.
The only reason I don't have to pay that much . . . is because we hit our out of pocket maximum with my first pregnancy, which was earlier this year. I spent $2000 on genetic testing when we lost Ethan! By the grace of god we didn't have to pay for his birth - the total came to $20,000
I know exactly what you mean, Bed rest at the hospital is costing us an easy 400 a day!!!! GRRRRR! thats not including what I have already paid my OB, or what its going to cost to have this little guy... Well there goes his college fund!
It's scary how much pregnancy can cost with insurance. I was very fortunate that my OB was part of my global care for my pregnancy. $15.00 one time for her and we were done. My MFM/peri was a $30.00 co-pay each visit which absolutely added up. I also had NST's 2x's per week, plus an MFM/peri visit weekly and in-home care 4x's per day for blood pressure monitoring. I met my out of pocket really fast with the $40.00 daily just for the in-home care.
Caden's birth cost $119,000 for everything. And I feel very fortunate that I paid only about $1500.00 towards that!
