At the Birth Center, we believe in transparency and honesty in all our interactions - especially financial. Talking about money is often uncomfortable and awkward but we know that by being clear about payment plans and financial expectations, we can ease a great deal of stress and anxiety.
As a health care consumer, you should know your birth options and the costs of each. An average non complicated hospital birth costs $24,000 while the birth center is far less than this. By understanding your insurance benefits, our financial policy, and the cost of our services - you will be able to make an informed choice about how you want to spend your healthcare dollars. For more information, our complete financial policy and deposit on services can be found here.
We have partnered with Larsen Billing, an off site billing agency. Larsen Billing is responsible for submitting all claims to your insurance and following up to ensure that you get the best reimbursement possible. Each client (except for medicaid, tricare, kaiser, and no insurance), will need to register with Larsen Billing to verify insurance benefits. The verification of benefits costs $20 and can be completed on Larsen Billing website (our provider pin is 14059).
We are in network with
- United Healthcare
- Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (PPOs)
- Cigna (HMO, Select, POS, PPO and OAP)
All Other Insurance
You will need to verify your benefits through Larsen Billing (our provider pin is 14059). Once you have verified your benefits, the birth center administrative staff will set up a payment plan based on our cash pay price. Complete deposit on services is due by 36 weeks of pregnancy. When the birth center receives reimbursement from your insurance company, we will promptly release your deposit on services.
Our preferred lab is Genpath (https://www.genpathdiagnostics.com). Not all insurances are in network in Genpath. Before your appointment, please contact Lynda at 719-510-9491 or your insurance to confirm that your plan is in-network with Genpath. If you need the Birth Center to send your blood work, pap smears, etc. to another lab we can facilitate that - please let your provider know when labs are drawn.
Insurance and payments can be complicated - please call Elizabeth or Marian to discuss your individual questions - 303.443.3993
