NC State Employee Health Plan and Ultrasounds?

Anyone know how many ultrasounds are covered by the state employee health plan? My doctor has scheduled one for 6 weeks and I want to make sure it's covered before I get it done. Hope so, looking forward to hearing baby's heart beat :)

Re: NC State Employee Health Plan and Ultrasounds?

  • Hello.

    I work for ncsu so I have the state health plan. I would call the insurance company. When I had an ultrasound at 12 weeksish for trisomy 13 (sp???) it was not covered. I also had one at 6 weeks, 16 weeks, and 18 weeks. Those were all "medically needed" and covered. I think it depends on the situation.

    You can also hear the heart beat when they use the fetal dopplar although not as early as 6 weeks (I think close to 10-12).

    Hope this helps
