Billing for Obstetrical Care


 

Our goal is to make the financial aspect of your pregnancy as painless as possible!  During the first few weeks of your pregnancy, we will verify your eligibility and coverage benefits with the insurance carrier to inform you of your financial obligation to our office. This amount reflects the portion of your bill we estimate the insurance will not cover. This is only an estimate. The total amount of your financial obligation must be paid in full by your 20th week of pregnancy. If your insurance coverage changes during your pregnancy, it is your responsibility to notify the business office as soon as possible. If it is necessary for you to leave our practice, you will be billed for all care provided up to the time of your departure.

Fees for a normal, uncomplicated pregnancy are based on prenatal visits, delivery and a 6-week post partum check. The pre-operative exam and two follow-up visits are also included in the charge for a Caesarean Section delivery.

What our fees include:

Our fees include the initial and subsequent history, physical examination, recording of weight, blood pressures, fetal heart tones, routine monthly visits up to 28 weeks gestation, biweekly visits to 36 weeks gestation and weekly visits until delivery. The fee also includes delivery and postpartum care. Included also is an extensive education packet and a detailed visit with a certified nurse-midwife to provide review history and lab results, provide education and develop a plan of care for your pregnancy.

Our fees do NOT include:

  • Fetal Non-stress tests
  • Blood work, lab tests, pap smears, etc.
  • Office calls for non-pregnancy related care
  • Anesthesia during childbirth
