Pregnant members can contact Polmed on 0860 765 633 to register for the Maternity Programme. Members are also identified through pregnancy-related claims and contacted to be registered on the Programme. Once registered, telephonic follow-up takes place to:
|Provide information and guidance on all aspects of the pregnancy, confinement and post-natal period|
|Provide a pregnancy and birth pamphlet|
|Authorise pregnancy vitamins and minerals, as approved by the Scheme, for six months|
|Refer complicated pregnancies to a high-risk maternity Case Manager|
|Provide a Care Plan to guide the doctor in the appropriate treatment for the duration of the pregnancy.|
Members are discharged from the Programme eight weeks after the delivery of the baby. For any hospitalisation during the pregnancy, pre-authorisation must be obtained.
