Pre-natal care and other birthing expenses

Post by Elway J » Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:45 pm

Hello,
My daughter is 20 years old and is 10 weeks pregnant. She will not be going back to college (where she would have been a junior) this fall. My husband and I are state of KS employees and our health care will cover some of her prenatal care, but the co pay for labor and delivery is $5,000 per calendar year - she is not due until early January, which means our co pay would be over 10,000.oo
We have seven kids and our expenses for all of them to attend college is enormous - this co pay is just completely beyond what we can afford (whether it is 5,000 or 10,000). She works as a waitress at Jose Peppers and the dad is a manager...neither of them can afford this enormous copay either.
She applied online for Kansas Medicaid but will not know for a week or more if she has been accepted. Our worry is that on paper our ins. seems really good - but the yearly co pay per person is astronomical and there is no way any of us can pay it.
Please help us know where to turn for assistance.
We greatly appreciate your help.
