    Health insurance question! Help please!
    nelawo posted:
    I just had my baby 3 weeks ago and would like to cancel my maternity covered insurance and apply for a non maternity insurance, so do you think the new one will cover my 6 weeks postpartum check up? TIA
    lenono97 responded:
    That's only a question the insurance company can answer. Every policy is different. You should ask the new company before canceling with the old one just to be safe.
    kay_kay75 responded:
    are you talking about state insurance like medicaid? if so you need to check with your case worker about it. But if it is non maternity I would say most likely if you go to a non maternity policy it will not cover your postpartum check up
