It’s so easy to use your benefits when you birth at the Birth Center! Because we have a LICENSED Birth Center, many insurance companies pay on claims just like they would for a hospital birth!
When we put in your insurance info into the insurance billing agency’s website, they call and get your benefit run down and let us know what your insurance will cover and what they will not. Then we can let you know.
Most of the time, the billing agency is able to get good payments for our fees, even for home births!
We use Midwives Advantage Billing Agency to bill and collect for your services and they are amazing to work for! They do all the work and make it very easy for us and you. Or we can do it for you as well.
Please ask for more info on how to take advantage of this service.
We are out-of-network providers for most insurance companies. We find that we get better payments from insurance companies when we are not contracted to charge specific amounts.
We are in network for Cigna. Select Health, Medicaid & PEHP do not work with out of hospital providers at this time but we do have a reduced fee for those who have those carriers. Ask us for more details!
Also, for those with insurance that only covers in network providers, you can request for an in-network exception, because we are the ONLY licensed Birth Center in 30-60 miles of you. But this is only necessary if we find that your insurance company won’t pay out of network providers at all. Most do pay in or out of network.
If you have a very large deductible, having an out-of-hospital birth can be BIG savings.
Just ask us how YOU can SAVE!
