Working With Insurance

In-Network Coverage

Sacred Space Midwifery is in-network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. Hometown Health Plan will cover maternity care with us at in-network rates. If you are with another insurance carrier there are still options we can discuss.

Out-of-Network Coverage

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.

Cash Pay

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. 

4

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. There is a $10 fee for this service.

Medicaid

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.
