Access Maternity and NICU Support Program

Childbirth class benefits

New for 2024: Members receive up to a $150 allowance (but not greater than the cost of the class) for childbirth classes as long as they are offered through a covered provider or facility. If you choose an out-of-network provider, you will be responsible for costs as outlined in the plan brochure.

Maternity Rewards

Elevate and Elevate Plus members can earn $100 in Wellness Pays rewards when you visit your OB/GYN or midwife within the first trimester of your pregnancy.

A first-trimester doctor visit is the foundation for effective prenatal care and can help ensure mother and baby’s good health in the important early stages of pregnancy.

These rewards can be used for qualified medical expenses, like physician office visits, medications and more.

Breast pump benefits

How to order your breast pump
Your breast pump benefit covers one dual suction, double-channel electric breast pump at 100%, with a physician's prescription, every 12 months when purchased from an in-network provider (such as your OB/GYN). A new prescription is required when requesting a new or replacement pump. Additional pumps may be obtained at your expense. Limit one pump every 12 months.

When to order your pump
Members can order as early as 30 days prior to their due date or once baby is born if they deliver prematurely.

Where to get your pump
You may obtain the breast pump and supplies from a contracted (in-network) provider (such as your OB/GYN). Not all providers are contracted to supply breast pumps (or associated supplies), so confirm with you provider if they are contracted with the UnitedHealthcare Choice Plus network to provide breast pumps. A list of nationwide providers is included below — these providers can ship on a nationwide basis. Providers may have different brands or models in stock, which are subject to change.

If you choose to use a non-contracted (out-of-network) provider, you will be responsible for costs as outlined in the plan brochure. You will not be reimbursed for a pump or supplies purchased at a retail store.
