  • 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.

  • No insurance? Does your insurance plan have a high deductible? Early payment discounts and payment plans are available. Karen also accepts most major credit cards.

  • Karen accepts Medicaid on a limited basis. She is in-network with Sunshine and can work with Staywell and Prestige.

  • 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 insurance or Medicaid, including the travel and birth assistant fees.

  • More insurance or billing questions? Please contact us! Every plan is different, even within the same insurance company or with the same employer. Let us help you find out what’s covered and how to maximize your benefits.
