Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept my insurance?
I will bill any insurance company, benefits vary between plans. All Washington based insurance plans that pay for maternity care will pay midwives but I still encourage you to check with your insurance plan to verify your coverage with a certified professional midwife, licensed midwife. This document can help you know which questions to ask.
I am currently in network with Premera, Regence and most of the Apple Health plans. I have pending contracts with First Choice Cigna, and United Healthcare and expect those to be in network within the next couple of months (as of 06/2020).
Do you accept Medicaid plans? Like Molina?
What if I don't have insurance?
I accept cash paying patients. In many circumstances, I can accept trades of some services if cash or insurance payment is not an option. I am also happy to arrange payment plans.
Do you work with an insurance biller?
I have a professional contracted biller. Many of your questions may be answered by her, you can e-mail her with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As mentioned, sometimes trading services or items is just as valuable to me as cash. If you cannot afford midwifery care but you have a service to offer, please feel free to reach out to me and see if it's something that my family could use!
