There is often a lot of confusion regarding health plans and savings programs that represent themselves as insurance. Many of these programs are NOT insurance and are simply a discount plan or a pre-arranged care contract.
If the person that is selling you the health plan or discount program doesn't have an insurance license...that is a big clue! We have a lot of people here in SC selling AmeriPlan (which is worthless in our area with little to no providers) and it is simply a discount plan. Even some of the representatives don't understand the differences between their plan and an insurance policy.
Be Careful...and do your research!

do you guys no if the cinergy will cover the birt of the baby in the hospital and the expenses of maternity for non citizen women?

Mike, I doubt if health insurance is even an option to non-citizens. The only access to health insurance that they might have is through their employment. Therefore, check with your employer.
And secondly, Cinergy doesn't offer health insurance. What it offers is a discount plan which would allow you to get immediate reduction in the service cost with the network physicians and hospitals when you would still be responsible for the remaining bills.
However, just hang tight the experts might suggest you some options.

I signed up for cinergy because i recently found out i was pregnant. Was that a mistake?

Hi Smayo, will they cover this pregnancy? I think that's the answer you need to find the answer for.
Normally health insurers consider pregnancy a pre-existing condition and though you may sign-up for health insurance during trimesters but the insurer wouldn't cover the current one. However, you would receive coverage for one in the future.

Hi jeorge. Thank you for the reply. Are you saying that it wouldn't cover the current trimester or the entire pregnancy? I'm confused.

Sorry about the confusion Smayo. :(
Health insurer wouldn't cover the current pregnancy but the future conditions would be covered. But since discount plans are not affected by the pre-existing conditions you may get the pregnancy covered alright.
Now, you must understand that what you have from Cinergy is not health insurance but a discount plan. You would receive discounted rate from the in-network doctors, hospitals and other health organisation but at the same time would be responsible for the rest of the bill.
I'm curious to know why you have signed up for Cinergy instead of health insurance and what you have been told by their sale representative during the sign-up.
Are you aware that you haven't purchased a health insurance policy?

I joined cinergy because I found out I was pregnant and had no insurance. I cancelled when I found out from the insurance commissioner's office in my state that cinergy wasn't worth anything. One of the people from cinergy told me that I wouldn't have to pay for any of the prenatal visits and they would pay 80% of the medicare rate after the baby was born. I called my hospital and they said there was no such thing. But luckly I got my money back. And that's only because I did a stop payment at my bank.

So, you have cancelled the Cinergy policy. :D You also did a great thing by looking them up with the Insurance Commissioner's office.
Now, have you started looking for a proper health plan?
Also, the states run health programs to offer subsidised health care to pregnant women and infants. You may check out with your state’s health department as well.

Did you come across any relevant information pertaining to settlements associated with Cinergy?
But luckly I got my money back.
Who did you get this reimbursement from?
