Working With Insurance
Sacred Space Midwifery is in-network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. Hometown Health Plan often covers maternity care with us at in-network rates. If you are with another insurance carrier there are still options we can explore.
Many plans have out-of-network coverage, with some covering up to 60% of your care after you meet your deductible. Depending on your insurance provider, some allow a 'Gap Exception'. Gap Exceptions can offer in-network coverage for your home birth.
This option is for families without insurance or for those who do not want to bill insurance for their care. I offer flexible payment plans to make homebirth a reasonable option.
Verification of Benefits
When you begin care, we will run a verification of benefits to determine what your deductible is, how much has been met, and estimate what you will owe. This service is free of charge. Visit Birth Professional Billing to see what your plan covers.
Unfortunately, due to the of lack of licensure in Nevada*, certified professional midwives are unable to be recognized as medicaid providers. Because of this we do offer a medicaid discount.
*Please note that while licensure is not currently available in Nevada,
I chose to attend an accredited midwifery school and maintain my licensure
in California for the safety of your growing family.
Additional Coverage Options
Another helpful service for families with no insurance, limited coverage or high deductibles is ambulance insurance. While ambulance transports are rare during labor and birth, they can be very expensive ($750-$2000). REMSA offers a very affordable Silver Saver Program that provides your household with multiple trips to the emergency room for only $69 a year.
