We generally like to have Dad and Mom and the kids all on the same health insurance policy. But sometimes you can save a lot of money by splitting the family up and putting different members on different policies. For example: A couple in their thirties with two children ages 10 and 12 would pay a monthly premium of $363 on an international policy that offered maternity. By putting dad and the two children on a non-maternity plan and leaving mom on a maternity plan, the total monthly premium would drop to $231. This would give a monthly saving of $132. There are variables involved here, e.g., deductibles and total coverage. And of course you will need insurance cards from two different companies. But the inconvenience would mean $132 extra every month in your pocket. That will add up to $1,584 in a year, and would easily pay for Christmas presents or some plane tickets!
