Anyone else been keeping tabs on their medical out of pocket costs for this pregnancy so far?
We have been getting bills here and there for labs, ultrasounds and stuff, though it seems like a bunch just came through recently from October (had my anatomy scan at my clinic, the more thorough scan at MFM, plus the amnio so a lot from that time period). I knew we seemed to be paying more out of pocket this time compared to when I was pregnant before (different insurances as DH has switched companies since then, we have decent insurance now but doesn't hold a candle to our last one). I think I was more sheltered last time because it seemed like almost everything was covered in full before even when we were going through infertility treatments. This time around I feel like I have had to pay something everytime I have a procedure. I just added up my bills so far and we have paid almost $800 so far between our deductible and co-pays. I have met my deductible for the year, but not my co-pay max. And this doesn't include my lump sum OB care fee and hospital co-pay that will come the end of this pregnancy (when my deductible is back at zero :(). Yikes! This kiddo is getting expensive! I'm glad I have not had to buy a lot of new stuff for him since he is our second boy. Maybe some of you have been paying more out of pocket. If you are I'm sorry. I was just shocked as I had not been tracking the total cost so far.
