Members recently voted on changes to the way maternities/pregnancies 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 do not go into effect until July 1, 2018 and will only apply to new pregnancies after that date. Members who are pregnant before July 1, 2018 will not be impacted by these changes. However, if your AHP is due to reset before your delivery, you will need to move to the $3,000 AHP or higher at that time.

Effective July 1, 2018, any new pregnancies 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 1,250 AHP level, you should change your AHP level if you are considering pregnancy. Maternity sharing has never been available at the 500 AHP level.

+ What if my maternity and delivery exceed the sharing limit?

The Extra Blessings program is available to Medi-Share members who have a need not eligible for sharing and is intended for unique situations, such as this. 

+ How do I change my AHP level?

You can login and use the online switch tool to change AHP levels. You can switch AHP levels one time without paying a switch fee, if you do so between June 1st and December 31, 2018.
