Prenatal/Birth/Postpartum Care Fee FAQ:
What insurance do you take?
I am not in-network with any insurance companies
That’s a no go for me (I realize this isn’t a question)
One of the goals of my practice is to provide excellent, financially accessible midwifery care to people of all income levels.
Being in-network for insurance would not allow me to do that as reimbursement is so bad for in-network providers I would have to take on large numbers of clients in order to make a living, which would not allow me to deliver personalized, quality care. I have therefore chosen to stay out of network.
With that said, I work with a very talented biller who assists in navigating the often confusing and stressful world of insurance companies. She can often get your insurance to fully cover your care with me, even if you:
- do not have out of network benefits and
- have spoken to a rep from your insurance company and they have told you that they will not cover my care.
Reps are often woefully misinformed and give incorrect information over the phone about your benefits. I have had many clients that were told initially their care with me would not be covered and then my biller succeeded in getting full coverage.
I understand that many people want to go in-network to avoid the hassle of having to deal with insurance and that pregnancy is a time that can be stressful and you don’t want to have to think about medical bills. So yes it does take a bit more work to sort out insurance coverage if you’re using a provider who isn’t in network but I strongly believe my model allows me to provide a much higher standard of care and is worth that extra couple of phone calls and a conversation with my biller!
What if your biller determines she can’t get my insurance to provide any coverage for your care?
If this is the case I bill on an income-based sliding scale in order to be as accessible to everyone as possible. I am happy to provide quotes upon request!
If you utilize my sliding scale I ask for a $1000 deposit at the first visit, 50% of the remainder paid by 28 weeks and the balance paid by 36 weeks.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, check, Venmo, credit/debit cards (for a 3% processing fee) and Square Cash (for a 2% processing fee).
