If the mother of the newborn is CHP-enrolled, her maternity expenses are covered as general medical expenses. The CHP covers prenatal and postnatal care performed by a physician and maternity expenses incurred in a hospital. Actual benefits are determined based on the option in which enrolled.
Newborns are covered by the CHP for routine hospital nursery care if the baby is enrolled within 60 days after birth (even those with family coverage you must enroll newborns within 60 days). Baby's charges are processed separately from their mother's, and the baby's hospital room and nursery charges will not be subject to deductibles unless enrolled in a high deductible health plan.
