Why would my insur. cover unlimited sono's but not.......... Kady 5 kids; Texas 2738 posts

cover any NST's? I am so confused! I had to have NST's last pregnancy too and I am considered high risk. I would think NST's would be cheaper and that the sono's would not be covered. Anyone have any insight?

I've never heard of that before, is that state medical?

It sure is. I wish we could afford private health insurance.

That's probably why. I don't have any personal experience with state medical but it seems like they have weird restrictions from.other posts I've read. Also, it could be the way its coded, maybe?

What is the reason for the NST? I had state with the twins and was approved for 2 NST a week but I was high risk, had tachycardia, and in preterm labor.

I was told by the state ppl (I was accidentally billed for my 1st NST so I called them) the mom and/or baby has to have a certain situations for them to approve the NST and pay for them. It was something about the possibility of the baby being in danger? Sounded like a load of crock to me but oh well.

That sounds about right though because there's no reason to have all those nst/us unless baby is potentially in danger, right?

You need to call Superior health care and medicaid about it. I just hate how they changed the medicaid program. They have made it so much more difficult . It can be confusing and it's not like they really help you. Maybe your billing department at your doctors office can help you deal with it. A non stress test is an important test and should be covered. Good luck.

Thanks! I also hate how they've changed it all. It is sooooooo confusing. When a friend of mine was pregnant a little over a year ago, she went to the hospital every time she had like two contractions and everything was covered. I go the minimum cuz I don't want to rip anyone off and I get treated like crap. Pisses me off.

I am high risk due to my previous c-section in 2005.

I worked for the state and dealt a lot with CHIP. It's a pain for sure and with them constantly changing it makes it nearly impossible to keep up with. I would think between you and your dr calling into the state. They would have to cover it especially if your Dr says you need it due to your previous baby. I know each state is different. On my last pregnancy I was on medicaid with her in another state. I was considered high risk due to my previous baby. They covered everything. Including a high risk specialist.

more than likely you need a referral or pre authorization......

You know it's gotten to the point where I don't even try to keep up with it anymore. I am going to ask my doctors office to call them and set everything up cuz I know I'll not get anywhere.
