Which ACA plan is the most cost effective for the average pregnancy in 2015 for a 28-year-old?
Dear Mama Shopper,
If you are comparing plans offered on your state’s health insurance exchange, you are in luck. All plans offered on the exchange are required to include a description of how their plan works (deductibles, co-pays, etc.) for a normal pregnancy. They will all include the identical information and assumptions.
I think your estimate of the pregnancy cost might be a little high. Pre-natal care might run about $2,000 and a hospital stay for a normal delivery could range from $10 – !5,000.
Best wishes for your exciting year and a healthy baby!
