I saw my midwife a few weeks ago (just to get her to sign a paper to get my Medicaid going). Because I was only there for a few minutes and it was kind of mentioned in passing, I didn't ask her to elabourate. At any rate, my midwife said that Medicaid doesn't cover homebirth in Texas? I'm not sure what portion of it isn't covered...is it just the birth fee itself? As in, Medicaid would cover all prenatal and I could pay out of pocket for the birth? Or, if it's a homebirth, they won't cover ANY of it? I'm just kind of confused on it, and I'd rather not spend a chunk of my appointment time (first one is on Monday) going over it if I can ask here. There are positives and negatives to birthing at her center vs. birthing at home - each has it's own set of ups and downs, but it would be nice to know for sure if homebirth is out of the option with my insurance.
