This is my first time posting here, as I usually hang out on the June 2012 Moms board and the 1st tri board. We are having our first baby in June. At the moment I am covered my insurance through my job, which is Aetna. I found out today the total out of pocket expense for having the baby and all prenatal care is $1500. I am also on my DH insurance through Kaiser. I am thinking about moving over to a doctor over there and having the baby at Kaiser, really because of costs. I live in the San Franando Valley if that matters.
I was wondering if there are any moms out there who used Kaiser for their care. How much did it cost you out of pocket? What was your experience like? I have heard good and bad. I called Kaiser today, and the guy claimed I would only be paying $100 adminstion fee, but that sounds way too good to be true.
Any stories or advice would be graciously appreciated! TIA
ETA: I would be at the Woodland Hills location, and if you have a doctor there you love, please give me the name. Thanks again!
