In brief: It depends
It depends what insurance company you have and what monitor your baby need.
Talk to your pediatrician. He/she might give you a better advice.

In brief: Not essential
Unless you live in a huge mansion, you will be able to hear your baby crying.
Most new parents sleep in the same room as their newborn for the first few months anyway. A monitor usually just causes you to hear every little normal noise your baby makes and creates much sleep deprivation for the parents.
