Stork Rewards Delivered to Expectant Moms
Are you or your wife expecting, and a member of the State Health Plan? You may want to check out the new NC HealthSmart Stork Rewards program to see how you can be the proud parents of hundreds of dollars in delivery room savings.
The Stork Rewards program is open to pregnant members* (dependent children are not eligible). To qualify, members must call a maternity coach at NC HealthSmart for an initial assessment during their first trimester and complete one action item, as determined with a coach, for each trimester following enrollment in the program.
Qualifying participants will have their inpatient hospital copay waived at the time of delivery:
- $233 for members enrolled in the 80/20 Standard plan
- $291 for those enrolled in the 70/30 Basic plan
Members who are already pregnant are eligible to participate by calling a maternity coach to enroll in the program. Members who become pregnant after October 1, 2011, must enroll during their first trimester. Members who already participate in maternity coaching through NC HealthSmart are automatically enrolled in the program.
Participants will receive an enlightening book to guide them through pregnancy and newborn care. You can also tap into numerous maternity resources available on your Personal Health Portal through the State Health Plan's website at www.shpnc.org.
Check it out, see if this is the support you want. Any way we can find savings, we'll pass them along to you. Call a maternity health coach at 800-817-7044 to get enrolled today
