Pregnancy

Are you pregnant?


How can our Pregnancy Support Program help you?

  • You will receive telephonic coaching from a Nurse Care Manager (an obstetrical nurse) at your convenience
  • You will receive covered benefits during and after your pregnancy such as an electric breast pump and help breastfeeding and a gift card to help pay for a child’s car seat. Learn more about your Tufts Health Plan coverage with our handy Prenatal Guide
  • The Nurse Care Manager will focus on complications with pregnancy, such as high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, multiple births and other conditions
  • Coordination with your doctor to implement a plan of care specific to your needs
  • Education and resources related to diet, medications, and childbirth resources
  • Expertise in breastfeeding, including pumps and equipment
  • Strategies to support bedrest and other doctor recommendations
  • We will discuss mutually established health care goals for you to achieve
  • We will help you comply with genetic testing, ultrasounds and other required testing
  • We will help address behavioral health issues that may be impacting your physical health and refer you to one of our experienced Behavioral Health Care Managers.

What do your benefits cover (Medications? Durable medical equipment? Lab work? Inpatient/outpatient care?)

If you have questions about your benefit coverage, please check your Evidence of Coverage Document (EOC) on mytuftshealthplan.com or call our member services number on the back of your ID Card. We encourage you to check your benefits to make sure you understand your out-of-pocket costs given that hospital expenses vary dramatically. You could use the treatment cost estimator to compare provider and hospital expenses (link to TCE or mytuftshealthplan.com to register)
