I paid them $699 June-July 2008 and my Daughter was born Feb 09. They didn't save me any money even though i sent them claims. I called them again and again to talk to my hospital only to find out from my hospital that no representative called them. With Maternity Advantage, they assign you your own "advocate" or representative and i was informed numerous times that mine had changed, making it hard for me to get help. They would tell me they would rather communicate through email than on the phone which was a red flag but i didn't realize this was a scam until seeing this site because it was our first child and never had signed up for anything like this before.

If anyone knows of how to get reimbursement for the scam, please contact me:

I'm glad to have found this blog. I was considering Maternity Advantage for my pregnancy. From the company's website, somehow I felt that there is something missing. The info that they have seems unclear and not solid. It led me to find some review on this company. Thank you for your postings, otherwise I could have be their next victim.

yup, I fell for it too. P.O.S. company.. I ended up on medicaid anyway and they still got $1,000 out of me that we could really use.

They refuse to respond to emails or any kind of contact once you've given them money.

Maternity Advantage is a total scam. They did not help me find a doctor, return my calls or e-mails, or refund my money like they said they would if they were not able to save me money on my prenatal care. Sounds like they took a lot of people's money. Disgusting to prey on pregnant women!

Does anyone know of a class action lawsuit to be a part of? This company needs to be dealt with.

If there is a suit I would like to get my name in for reimbursement.

Thanks

Bill

This company ripped me off and finally paid me back after filing a complaint with the BBB and ripoff.com! It is cheaper to go through financial aid with your hospital. Don't waste your money!!

This is a Big Fat JOKE! We paid in full up front, they did make me an appointment and said they had saved me so much money, well I called the midwives cold turkey and they quoted me the exact same price! Then as the months went on, I could never get a hold of M.A. finally after asking to speak to a supervisor the girl that claimed to be my agents manager said she would take care of everything (all my bills that were stacking up) and call me first thing the next week, My child is now 3 months old and I still haven't heard from them, I was about 6 months pregnant when they said that! I want my money back, all of it, plus because they were suppose to be working my bills, they told me do not pay them until I talked to them and they negotiated with each company, all I have is major bills past due now with a bad credit scoring...Did I mention when they finally told me what to pay, I recieved checks back w/ void on them from my medical companies saying they would not settle at these prices...Once more...this is a scam!

I think that Maternity Advocates is a scam, and I am embarressed to say i fell for it, hook, line and sinker. I didnt have maternity insurance when I was pregnant with my 2nd child. I was told that the hospital charges would be negotiated and any unpaid balance could be covered by "grants" and "scholarships". I was given the runaround so many times I just quit trying.

TOTAL SCAM!! Please do not sign up! I too fell for this needing help with maternity expenses. I landed a great job half way through my pregnancy & had complete maternity coverage with my new insurance. I got the run around when I tried to cancel & was told I needed to fill out an online form when I mentioned "refund." To make a long expensive story short, we were told a decision would be rendered in 90 days (its been about 180 now). When I called to find out the situation all numbers have been disconnected except one which was a "leave a message" recording. I too am considering legal action!! These people need to be stopped!!!

I wish there was a 0 rating. They don't even deserve a 1. I can't even describe how angry I am with maternity advantage. We have paid them almost $2000 and they have saved us NOTHING!!!! They claimed they saved us 20% of the doctor delivery, but the doctor already gave that discount if you paid by 30 weeks. My son and I were in ICU for over a month. We need that money! Every time I try to call I get a recording that says no one is available and to leave a message. I have left messages and emailed them. NO RESPONSE! I am now looking a legal ways to get my money back. I don't know if we will be able to, but I am going to fight this. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE IN TO THIS SCAM!!!!!!!!!! If you don't have maternity insurance, don't worry about it. It will work out. Just think about it. You really wanna add more to your maternity bills by paying these people to do nothing??? THEY ARE A BIG SCAM!!!

This company is an absolute SCAM. I paid $700 up front and after I delivered my son I owed $700 in bills. How ironic since it all balanced out. HOWEVER, the discount price they gave me was all a fraud. The hospital kept billing me for the amount that Maternity advantage said I did not owe. I was given a maternity advocate who was supposed to handle all this for me, BUT the hospital says they have never heard from them. I even called the CEO of maternity advantage on his personal cell phone given to me by a former employee who quit because he knew they were fraud. DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT by into them. It is FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lost $600 dollars to Maternity Advantage. I cancelled three days after i gave them the money because they did not come through on their part to call the doctor. They promised me a refund wich never came. Now 1 year later I tried calling them again and number is disconected. I have learned my lesson to check the Better Business Bureu about any company i am unsure of. I noticed they had many bad comments and basically they are a smam. I ended up applying for Maternity Medical only and they have covered all the medical expenses for the pregnancy.

Scam...beware!! They saved us $0.00 and charged us over $500.00. Beware of their "money back" promises. They are thieves, liars and a fraud. Go to your hospital and work with them. You will be suprised how much you can save without these crooks woking for you.

I received a call back from the supervisor Quest Laboratories and he advised me that they were not able to decrease the billed amount due to the fact that the pre-paid labs were not utilized.

I wish there was a way that I could have them lower the amount but Iím unable to guarantee any savings for the labs services if the per-pay option isnít taken advantage of prior to service.

My fiance' signed up and they left her with the impression that she would be "fully covered". They said nothing about negotiating the price down. They acted as if this was an insurance program that would subsidize the cost.

I've tried to cancel and now they're telling me without proof of other coverage they will charge us a $250 early termination fee.

She called in a panic and seeing as she is pregnant with a cheap insurance policy that has no maternity coverage, she was denied everywhere.

So they led her to believe that this was her saving grace and we had nothing to worry about. But of course, all the promises they made were not in the contract. Unfortunatly, she didn't bother to read it. She just trusted that they were telling her the truth.

It's unfortunate that people actually do this kind of misleading for a living. I sell cars and I've never lied to make a sale. It just causes more trouble than it's worth. Too bad their livly hood isn't based on Cutomer Satisfaction Survey's.

Unfortunatly, we won't get our money back and still have to pay for the doctor's visit that they didn't help with.

I just hope whoever is researching this program, they type in "scams" in the search engine. Otherwise, they may end up in our situation.

After reading these scathing reviews, I started to question if they were all written by the same person. Some sound like sour grapes, and none have much in the way of real detail. When I got to the one which mentions the Better Business Bureau, I did some checking on my own before signing up with Maternity Advantage. WOW! The BBB gives the parent organization, Affordable Health Care Options (AHCO) a rating of F! This is very hard to get from the BBB. They list the following reasons:

* 132 complaints filed against business

* 4 serious complaints filed against business.

* Government action(s) against business.

* Advertising issue(s) found by BBB.

I'm thankful to have found this board and these reviews. I'm definitely going to steer far clear of this organization of crooks!

I just got off the phone with their representative which informed me that the $69.00 I have paid in over the last five months is NON-REFUNDABLE!!! SCAM!!!! I received nothing for the money I paid in every month. I never got pregnant and I was on their pre-pregnancy program. I was never told the money was non-refundable. READ THEIR TERMS and CONDITIONS! I guess it does clearly state it is non-refundable. Please don't fall prey to this scam. They don't do anything they say they are going to do, but they will gladly take your money!. SCAM!!!!!

Maternity Advantage is a scam. During your initial call, they seem friendly and helpful (so they can get you signed up and take your money). Don't do it! Even if you are desperate and don't have maternity insurance. I suggest looking into Medicaid or call a local university hospital or clinic and talk to a financial counselor. You can also go to maternitylabs.com to look into paying your lab fees upfront at a lower cost. Hope this helps and saves you some heartache! Congrats on the baby...what a blessing!

THIS IS A SCAM!!!!! Women Please do not give them any money.....I paid 699 dollars, with the assurance that every medical facility would cooperate with them! THIS IS FALSE! I have tried for over a year to get a refund, or a letter stating that they did not render any services. They told me:"I guess we will agree to disagree" that is a quote from their head supervisor BRAD! THEY DID NOTHING FOR ME BUT TAKE MY MONEY!

BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE!

Please run far away from AHCO and Maternity Card. This company is a big scam and the customer service line will leave you with nothing but high blood pressure.

They take your money up front for the fee, charge you $99 a month, and never do anything with your claims. They claim they are always ďprocessingĒ, for 2 months they will tell you this. Oh, and that is of course, when you CAN get in touch with them. I counted and logged two occassions within one week where they had me on hold for 45 minutes, only to put me into a voicemail one of those times, and the other time it turned into a busy signal.

After 2 months of receiving duplicate bills from doctors and labs, and getting past due notices, I have been all of fed up and again, after painful dealings with customer service, I am told that ďwe never received your claims, please resubmit.Ē

Iíve checked with the Better Business Bureau and there were hundreds of similar complains. When I called and tried to cancel, they said it would have to be done in writing (on customer service rep actually hung up on me), and within writing, it may even be subject to another $250 fee just to cancel!

Iím outraged and sickened by this company. When pregnant women go to them for help, they use and abuse them by taking their money, causing them unnecessary stress and not doing a single thing for their doctorís bills or claims.

Iíve filed a complaint with my credit card and the Better Business Bureau. Please steer clear of this company unless you like unwanted stress and like to hand your money to incompentent people.
