insurance

 

Your insurance policy may cover some postpartum or home health care.  You should call and find out what is or is not covered and at what percentage an in or out of network provider/service is covered.  Kristin will provide a detailed invoice with CPT and ICD10 codes, Dates of service, and fees to you can bill your insurance.  

Kristin is passionate about helping people understand their care choices and how they are influenced by our healthcare landscape, so please bear with this public service announcement:  

Insurances DO pay for postpartum care for mother and baby–just not very well if at all.  That’s one reason why most medical professionals do not provide routine postpartum care.  It is unfortunate that parents are forced to try their best at home until something is so painful or worrisome that they go in for what turns out to be an expensive visit with more interventions.  

Why not avoid all that hassle and just get postpartum midwifery care right in your home?
