Yesterday at my first prenatal visit , my nurse practitioner told me to schedule a nuchal projection where do the blood test + ultrasound to check the baby's neck for signs of Down Syndrome . She did not tell me about the projection , saying only that schedule, so I assumed it was some kind of standard evaluation is done. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus However, when I was reading over forms ( after programming it) , said he consulted with insurance if you are under 35 years to see if it covers . I tried to call my insurance , but they could not give me an answer except " if medically necessary." MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My nurse - practitioner has marked my pregnancy "high risk - in general" , but certainly not for Down Syndrome . So I'm not sure if this qualifies as medically necessary . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Has anyone had experience in the neck was covered by insurance? What was necessary was that ? It is "high risk " a valid medical reason ( in the eyes of insurance) to cover it ?
