BILLING & INSURANCE INFORMATION

Whatever fee is agreed upon can be paid in payments by 36 weeks, paid all up front or billed to insurance. I offer hardship discounts, varied payment plans and work with a billing service for all of our insurance paying clients.

INSURANCE VERIFICATION

To verify whether or not your insurance will cover a portion of your midwifery fees, please make sure you bring a copy of your driver's license, insurance card and the primary cardholder's information. 

 If you decide you would like to bill your insurance for prenatal and birth care, we are able to bill your insurance for you.

I suggest that if you want to try billing your insurance for midwifery care, first obtain an insurance verification. Many people prefer to do this after a Midwife Consultation. 

Any deductibles or copays are collected prior to your 36 week visit. All Midwifery services mentioned are billed as a global fee*, which means even if you needed care from an outside provider, or transferred to a hospital for delivery, the global fee does not change and is billed to your insurance as normal.

*Global services are also known as total maternity care or global maternity services/care. For services rendered during the maternity period, insurance providers or cash pay clients, pay a global fee for prenatal care, false labor, delivery, and postnatal services.
