Yes, I do work with many insurance companies! It's a common misconception that insurance companies will not cover
a homebirth or a midwife. Here are some of the companies I work with most frequently:
Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield (in-network provider)
Hometown Health (some in-network rates available)
United Health Care (some in-network rates available)
Healthscope/PEBP (out of network rates)
Aetna (some out of network rates)
Cigna (out of network rates)
To get an idea of what your insurance company will or won't cover, we will want to run a verification of benefits. My insurance biller will contact your insurance company to get all the details about your specific plan and coverage. This process might be simple and as quick as a week, or your insurance company may require additional paperwork and requests for exceptions or authorizations which could take several weeks. It is best to start the verification of benefits process as soon as possible, preferably before our first appointment.
My biller charges a $25 fee through Paypal to run the verification for you. This covers her time on the phone as well as the time she spends doing paperwork and following up on requests and exceptions.
