I contacted my Health Insurer today to change my cover to hospital only.
As the Rep and I discussed what I was looking for, I pointed out that maternity and IVF was not required and neither was Male reproductive services
I was surprised to find that this item is standard on all policies regardless of whether the policy holders’ gender. She said it didn’t impact me.
But it does, in a year when our wage increase was 1.7% and Health Insurance will rise, in April, an average of 2.74%.
Why should I pay for this item, yes I am paying for it. Go ahead go to any health insurance site and check the premium difference between maternity and no maternity.
So many single women have health insurance and are paying for this item unknowingly.
Why can’t this item be removed and premiums reduced when we can for maternity and IVF, it’s the same.
