The total fee includes complete prenatal, birth and postpartum care, newborn care at birth and all newborn screening tests, birth supplies, deluxe birth pool, routine medications for mom and baby at birth, birth assistant and a travel fee that allows your midwife to provide home visits for prenatal and postpartum care.
Have insurance? Our biller will work with you and your insurance company to get the best coverage possible but Karen does not contract with and is not in-network with any private insurance company. All fees are ultimately the responsibility of the patient. Keep in mind that Florida law requires most insurers to cover midwifery services and home birth.
Have Medicaid? Karen is an in-network provider with the Sunshine Health plan. She can also work with Prestige and Staywell plans. If you’re on a different plan we can help you switch.
No insurance? Does your insurance plan have a high deductible? Don’t qualify for Medicaid? Cash discounts and payment plans are available. Karen also accepts most major credit cards.
Lab work, ultrasound and physician consultations are not included in Karen’s fee. Lab work discounts are available for those without insurance.
There are some out-of-pocket costs to you for services not covered by Medicaid or private insurance, including the travel and birth assistant fees.
