Are you a surrogate mother or intended parent using a surrogate mother who has no health insurance?
Or perhaps your surrogate mother has lost her health insurance during the pregnancy?
Since Medicaid is not allowed for surrogate pregnancy, options are few and far between.
The most common two options are to pay for the surrogacy completely in cash, or to use a medical discount card, such as the one offered here on Information on Surrogacy.
This medical discount card is NOT insurance, but can save a substantial cost over the cash method. There is a low monthly fee to use the discount card, and it must be put in the surrogate mother’s name.
This card is only available in select areas in the United States. To see if you are covered, and find out more information, please see:
