Members voted in May of 2018 to change the way maternities are shared. Members agreed that there should be a maximum sharing limit for maternity, as well as a minimum AHP level that is required in order for maternity to be shared. These changes are effective July 1, 2018. Please review the information below if you are currently pregnant, or planning on adding to your family.

These guideline changes apply to new pregnancies after 7/1/18. If you are a Medi-Share member with a membership start date and a conception date before 7/1/18, the maternity cap and AHP level requirement does not affect you. Download our Maternity Guide for more information.

Please note: If your AHP is due to reset before your delivery, you will need to make sure you have a $3,000 or higher AHP at that time.

Effective July 1, 2018, sharing will be limited to $125,000 for any single pregnancy event. This includes the cost of antepartum care, the cost of delivery and complications to the mother and/or child(ren), and postpartum care. A typical maternity costs $19,000, so the majority of maternities will not be impacted by this change.

Effective July 1, 2018, members must have an AHP level of 2,500 or higher for maternity to be eligible for sharing. This means that if you are currently on the 500/1,000 or 1,250/1,750 AHP levels, you should change your AHP level if you are considering pregnancy.
