Dr. DiCampli shares if health insurance will cover a home birth and discusses the cost associated with hiring a midwife.
They do not. Insurance does not cover home births and it is something that, as a global community, we are working towards getting some reimbursement. It is economically more feasible for the insurance companies to cover but at this juncture they are not, usually there is no reimbursement.
It can vary from state to state, midwife to midwife, it’s significantly less than a hospital birth so it depends on the midwife.
