Help! Need worldwide health care with maternity cover (low waiting period)


I am desperately trying to find an international health insurance that has maternity cover with a waiting period for coverage of maternity no more than 90 days.  Preferable even less of a wait if it exists.  I will be moving to Spain next week and will live there definitely for 6months.  After that time, depending on my work, I will either be able to stay in Spain or I will have to move, probably back to the U.S. but potentially to another country as well.  

My husband and I have delayed starting a family because of our moving around, however it doesn't seem to have an end :) So, we really want to start trying to get pregnant by this coming August 2009.  Therefore, I need coverage for maternity starting August (or near) and beyond, worldwide.

I cannot find anything online for this situation.  Please give me any advice you possible can.

Thank you so very much!

I agree.  You are going to have some issues finding the coverage that you need let alone it being an affordable health insurance plan.  I would think that the best bet a person like you has and Amir may know better then I but would be to find a world wide health insurance plan with a broker like the medibroker or http://www.nationalinsurancebrokers.com, but the plans that i am aware of would require you to be in the u.s. I think every 6 months on a return visit of some sort and show that you do reside in the u.s.

I hope they can help you a little but, starting a family is a great thing and I hope you have the opportunity.  Good luck.

The reason why you can’t find international health insurance that has maternity coverage is because it is not easy to determine the potential cost of services & therefore what you should be charged for premiums. Who knows if you will be giving birth in an expensive metropolitan hospital with a world renowned obstetrician or in a small town clinic with a local midwife? Even the “European Health Insurance Card” doesn’t cover maternity for Europeans the way US insurers that offer this benefit do! What you might be able to find is a plan with limited benefit, regardless of what the total cost may be or where you have your child.

Try medibroker at http://www.medibroker.com/quotes.html. They are an independent broker specialized in international insurance and maybe able to help you find a plan that has some of the things you are looking for.
