Does Insurance Cover Homebirth?
Does Insurance Cover Home Birth?Yes. FL law mandates that home birth be covered by insurance companies. (See Florida Statute Number 627.6574) Whether or not the insurance company decides to pay for services at in network or out of network rates is strictly up to each individual plan. While we are not in network with any specific insurance companies, we do accept insurance and use an experienced billing company to file claims. We will advise you on obtaining a gap exception, which allows your care to billed at in-network rates. If a gap exception is denied, your care will be billed as out of network. How much is a great birth worth to you?
Do You Accept Medicaid?
Due to the recent Medicaid HMO changes, we cannot accept Medicaid and stay open. However, we do offer a sliding scale discount for those who currently have Medicaid. This discount is based on income. If you’d like to know how much you’d qualify for, let us know your household income and we can calculate it. We truly believe all women deserve a great birth, and all midwives deserve to eat. : )
