A new NC HealthSmart Stork Rewards program can help employees be the proud parents of hundreds of dollars in delivery room savings.

The Stork Rewards program is open to pregnant employees* (dependent children are not eligible). To qualify, employees must call a maternity coach at NC HealthSmart for an initial assessment during their first trimester and complete one action item, as determined with a coach, for each trimester following enrollment in the program.

Qualifying participants will have their inpatient hospital copay waived at the time of delivery:
• $233 for employees enrolled in the 80/20 Standard plan
• $291 for those enrolled in the 70/30 Basic plan

Call a maternity health coach at 800-817-7044 and get enrolled today.Employees who are already pregnant are eligible to participate by calling a maternity coach to enroll in the program. Employees who become pregnant after October 1, 2011, must enroll during their first trimester. Employees who already participate in maternity coaching through NC HealthSmart are automatically enrolled in the program.

Participants receive an enlightening book to guide them through pregnancy and newborn care. They can also tap into numerous maternity resources available on their Personal Health Portal through the State Health Plan's website.
