Indeed. A high risk pregnancy can easily end up costing $100,000 or more.

My question is whether this is legal on the United Refuah side.
Maybe it's best not to discuss on a public forum, but for the consumer this is the best situation.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I was going to edit your posts to say managing risks (rather than costs) but then I remembered that it isn't Insurance so I am not sure what their risks are and what their obligations are.

This is a prime example of what's wrong with the ACA and why it does nothing to reduce insurance premiums - on the contrary, it allows for this kind of abuse.

Yup, and everyone else pays for this abuse, as with any insurance abuse or fraud. Not suggesting that what RefuahHealth is doing is fraudulent.

Hope everything goes well bez”h for your relative, בעתה ובנקל.

When government gets involved, you can be sure people will take advantage. As ExGingi said, this is part of why ObamaCare is such a disaster.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Related to me just like she's related to you.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Can you buy insurance when you are pregnant?
« Reply #127 on: July 14, 2021, 06:47:19 PM »
Just so you understand the current insurance market climate properly. The government is strongly encouraging people to purchase insurance policies now, regardless of their preexisting conditions. They are handing out billions in subsidies, and New York and New Jersey have opened their enrollment through the end of the year. In addition, they allow pregnant women to purchase a policy retroactively from the beginning of the pregnancy (and encourage it). There is no "abuse of the system" if someone that is pregnant buys an insurance policy. On the contrary, they want you to do so. It could be that this is the beginning of the Medicare for All plan, but regardless, anyone can purchase a policy today during open enrollment regardless of their health history. It really bothers me anytime I see posts like this one in which people "jump to conclusions".

You can read this link for some more information on how much the government is pushing these plans and how much they are putting behind it:

As far as United Refuah is concerned, I just did a google search and could not find ONE negative review for them other than one person that was not accepted for membership and was disappointed. They have 4.9 stars in Google, and they are in their fourth year of business with thousands of members in 33 states. I don't know what the situation is with this high risk birth that you mentioned, but I would be very careful to express negative opinions of a Jewish organization based on guessing.
