  • Registration and pre-authorisation is required

You will have cover for two maternity visits, which includes two 2D growth scans or ultrasounds, per pregnancy. You will need to visit a Network GP who is certified to do growth scans, or be referred by a Network GP to a gynaecologist (Gold option only). If you do consult a gynaecologist, the scan will be paid from this benefit, but the visit will be paid from your specialist benefit.

Your doctor may also send you for pathology tests related to your pregnancy, and prescribe antenatal vitamins for you from an approved list.
