I am going to New York for 5 days when I will be 14 weeks (which was booked long before getting up the duff!)
Can anyone recommend Travel Insurance they have used or maybe even claimed on for pregnancy-related medical issues while in the US? I have started to have a look around at various policies but it is going to take an absolute age to ring them all up or trawl through their small print for their policies on issues arising from pregnancy.
I am fit, healthy, have no other medical conditions and have been classified as low risk by my Midwife, but if a problem does arise the US is the last place in the world I want to be without adequate medical cover!
I'm in the process of putting in a claim with AXA and all good so far - rang them prior to treatment and they were really helpful. I would make absolutely sure you're covered, though, and that they will arrange to pay the provider directly if over a certain amout.
I've just been to an ER (apparently the only option for quick treatment on a weekend) for a simple UTI in early pregnancy - weed in a cup, spent 5 minutes with doctor - and my bill was close to $1000. It's absolute madness.
