So what's the factors about getting them covered threw insurance? My dr said they might not be covered since my premies weren't born 32 weeks or less?
I am not really sure. I called my insurance and they cover them 100% if I get them at the doctor's office. However my OB doesn't do it that way I have to get them from the pharmacy and then bring them in to get the shots. So I have to pay a rx copay.

I'm still trying to get them covered. They want me to start them next week. I called my health insurance, and they said it was covered. They didn't receive any paperwork from my dr yet. My stupid prescription insurance (yes I have 2 different companies) said the paperwork wasn't filled out right. I called the ob and complained. She is making me her all day project today. Hopefully it will get cleared up today. Walgreens keeps calling me and telling me my paperwork is still pending. Well I would of send the darn paperwork in 10x if I had possession of it!!
When I was pregnant with DD my doc wanted me on the shots also. But, only one place in the area carried/despensed them, and they didnt take my INS. We couldnt afford them, so I had to for go them. This time around my OB hasnt even mentioned them. I am lucky in the fact that even though I have had lots of preterm contractions starting at 30, 28, and then 24 weeks, the earliest I started to dilate was 33 weeks with DD... and we were able to stop it with being in the hospital for 5 days, 3 of those on Mag. Sulfate... man I hate that stuff
well Makena is covering the cost til insurance gets figured out. Had my first today and ouch, my butt is sore. Sht wasn't too bad...
My MW wants me to start them at my next appointment at the end of the month. I had a high risk condition that put me at risk for preterm labor and naturally have that risk as I was a premie myself. I'm showing symptoms of my high risk condition again so the 17P shots idea is all the more reassuring. My DD was born at 36 weeks and was perfect, but I started having contractions at 25 weeks and was on strict bed rest most of my pregnancy, spent two stints in l&d at 33 and 35 weeks. I hope they are less painful for you next time and that they allow you to have a non eventful full term pregnancy!
