Maternity Program Bonuses
Moms enrolled in the 32BJ Maternity Program get the great maternity coverage offered to all our members and their dependents. But they also get peace of mind knowing they are selecting a hospital and provider that deliver high-quality care that has been verified by the 32BJ Health Fund.
Other bonuses include a rebate for your hospital admission when you have your baby, special gifts, and additional maternity resources.
Special Copay Rebate
Eligible moms who have enrolled in the 32BJ Maternity Program and deliver at a 32BJ Maternity Program hospital will pay the $100 admission copay to the hospital when billed. However, they can receive a copay rebate. See rebate requirements and instructions below.
Requirements for $100 Copay Rebate:
To qualify for the rebate, you must complete the two program enrollment requirements, give birth at a 32BJ Maternity Program hospital, and be eligible for 32BJ benefits on the date of delivery.
How to request your copay rebate
You can choose one of two ways to request your $100 copay rebate. (Please see below if you also have other health plan coverage.)
- You can choose to do nothing and wait for the rebate. When the hospital sends the medical claim for the birth/delivery to the 32BJ Health Fund, the Health Fund will send you the rebate. This claim process can sometimes take as long as six months. If you do not mind waiting for the rebate check, you don’t need to do anything to get your copay rebate.
- To get your rebate sooner, you can send a copy of the hospital discharge papers to us. This is the fastest way to get your rebate. Mail or email us a copy of the hospital discharge papers mom receives when she is released from the hospital after delivery. The discharge papers will allow the 32BJ Health Fund to confirm that the delivery occurred, and will also validate that the delivery took place at a 32BJ Maternity Program hospital.
Email discharge papers to:

If you also have other health plan coverage
If you have other insurance in addition to your 32BJ Health Fund coverage, you may need to request reimbursement of your hospital copay. If your other health insurance is considered your primary coverage, to receive the rebate of your hospital copay, you must provide separate documentation of what the hospital charged you for your copay. Using the addresses above, please mail or email a copy of the hospital bill you received for the copay for the hospital admission when you delivered your baby. The 32BJ Health Fund will reimburse up to $100. You must send a copy of the bill within 180 days of the delivery. You may call Health Services to find out if this rule applies to you.
Gifts for Mom and Baby
Moms can choose and enjoy one of the special bonus gift packages for her and her baby.
To receive your gift, you must have met all the requirements by week 32 of your pregnancy.
