Planning for pregnancy and first trimester
Postpartum and beyond
0 to 12 weeks
Thinking about having a baby?
- Know what types of visits and services are covered under your health plan. Log in and click “My Benefits” to view your plan details. Download your Summary of Benefits and Coverage to see what you’ll pay for covered services for everything from prenatal appointments through delivery.
- While you’re logged in, use our health care cost estimator to compare prices of pregnancy-related services at different facilities near you.
- Find an OB-GYN in your area. An obstetrician, also known as an OB-GYN, specializes in pregnancy, labor and birth. Make an appointment to talk about your medical history and recommendations to help you stay healthy while trying to conceive.
Just had a positive pregnancy test?
- Congratulations! Now’s the time to get familiar with the details of your health plan. Log in and click “My Benefits” to view your plan details. Next, download your Summary of Benefits and Coverage to see what you’ll pay for covered services from prenatal appointments through delivery.
- Schedule an appointment with your OB-GYN to confirm your pregnancy and establish a plan of care. Ask about what vitamins, foods and exercises they recommend. If you don’t already have an OB-GYN, use our provider search tool to find one in your area.
- Get to know our health care cost estimator estimator and how it can help you plan your budget for the year ahead.
- If you smoke, try quitting. Check out HAP’s Tobacco Cessation programs to help. As a HAP Empowered member, you have access to a program that will help you quit smoking. This program is offered through the Michigan Tobacco Quitline, and includes 4 coaching sessions over the phone to help you create and maintain quitting goals.
28 weeks to delivery
- Most HAP plans cover breast pumps, supplies and other breastfeeding support. Check your benefits to see if breastfeeding equipment is covered under your plan. Log in or register and click “Benefit Coverage Policies.” Then use the Policy Search tab to search “breast pump.” You can also call Customer Service at the number on the back of your ID card to find out the best way to order a pump based on your plan.
- Choose a pediatrician. It’s helpful to establish a relationship with your baby’s doctor before you deliver. They’ll also want to know at the hospital who your little one will see after you’re discharged. Use our provider search tool to find the best doctor to help you manage your baby’s care.
- Register for a hospital tour and prenatal classes. If you’re delivering at a Henry Ford hospital, a free or reduced fee is offered to HAP members for most childbirth and parenting classes.
- Schedule a postpartum visit with your OB-GYN. Your doctor will typically want to see you four to six weeks after delivery to check on your recovery. He or she will ask how you're feeling physically and emotionally, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
- Add your baby to your health plan. Having a baby qualifies as a special enrollment period, so you can update or switch plans outside of open enrollment. If you have insurance through your employer, contact their human resources or benefit department to make this change. If you purchased your own plan, call the Customer Service number on your HAP ID card.
- Your body and hormones will still be going through changes after you deliver. Look for signs of postpartum depression. If you think you need help managing your symptoms, contact your doctor or HAP’s Coordinated Behavior Health Management program for treatment options.
- Schedule your baby for their first well visits and immunizations. If you don’t already have one, use our provider search tool to choose a pediatrician.
