To enroll in Healthy Expectations:
Call the Medical Advisory Services number (800) 433-3232, located on the back of your ID card as soon as you find out you are pregnant.
Once you've pre-notified us for coverage, you will receive a welcome packet with information about the program. The packet will include instructions on how to enroll beginning with the completion of an initial assessment.
Based on the information that you provide, you'll receive educational materials specific to your needs. With your written consent, information from your health assessments will also be shared with your provider.
If there are any significant factors that could affect your pregnancy, a maternity nurse will offer to coordinate your care.
If you pre-notify and complete the initial Healthy Expectations® health risk assessment witin the first trimester or first 17 weeks of your pregnancy, you will receive a copy of The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Book of Pregnancy and Baby Care. When you complete and return the final questionnaire, within seven weeks after your baby is born, you may be eligible to receive a coupon valid for $50 off any Toys "R" Us or Babies "R" Us purchase of $50 or more.
