Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 3, 2006
MaternityCard, through its parent company Affordable Health Care Options (AHCO), is helping expectant mothers find financial relief with innovative maternity benefits and services.
With http://www.MaternityCard.com, AHCO offers their customers a simple means of saving substantially on the costs of having a child. Their services are aimed at those who don't have health insurance, don't qualify for government assistance, or do have health insurance but don't have coverage for the cost of having a baby. The segment of the population that falls into these categories is growing every day.
A http://www.MaternityCard.com client can expect to save up to 60% off of the usual and customary rates which uninsured parents are usually expected to pay to the physicians and hospitals.
With their services, there are no exclusions for pre-existing conditions, no high premiums, no co-pays or deductibles, and no lengthy claims forms to fill out. The Patient Advocacy Team assists the clients through every stage of pregnancy, contacting physicians and hospitals directly to obtain the most savings, through contracts and negotiations.
Clients save on every medical aspect of their pregnancy, including doctor visits, lab work, ultrasounds, prenatal vitamins, prescriptions, hospital stay and anesthesiologist, any complications, and post-natal care for the mother and child.
April 5, 2005, The Wall Street Journal, CHILDBIRTH FOR BARGAIN-HUNTERS, says, "Pregnant woman are by necessity and ingenuity paving the way in what is called 'consumer driven' health care." And, "a typical childbirth can run anywhere from $7,000 to $12,000." Also, http://www.MaternityCard.com is mentioned in the article as one of the innovative alternatives for uninsured pregnant woman.
Kelly Jones, Winnemucca, NV says that http://www.MaternityCard.com has been a good experience. "We found your information on the web after we found out we were pregnant before our maternity insurance kicked in. We were really nervous about all the high bills that were starting to come in, especially since we were having twins. When I finally decided to make the call, everyone was so helpful and supportive. It really made me feel more at ease knowing I had some help when I needed it. They saved me at least $9000 on one bill, and I didn't have to deal with the hospital! That was so important to me because I was able to spend more time with my new babies."
One of the founders, Angelo Feller, recently used http://www.MaternityCard.com for the birth of his fifth child. "I'm a pro at the delivery room paper shuffle, and this birth was the smoothest one, yet!" AHCO and http://www.MaternityCard.com have contracted rates with a network of over 450,000 providers, and pass those savings directly to the customers, allowing them to save much more than an uninsured individual could possibly save on their own behalf.
AHCO offers a wide variety of consumer driven healthcare products for individuals and families, including a Co-Pay Prescription Card benefit, Critical Illness & Accident benefits, as well as more comprehensive benefit programs for those in need of our services. These benefits are offered, as well as the http://www.MaternityCard.com program, specifically to meet a growing need among Americans for peace-of-mind in the current state of the health care industry.
