got my homebirth covered - happy dance!!!
So thanks everybody! To share an update, our employer is fighting with us, but Independent Health is still giving us quite a hard time. Mom2disnykids, we plan to deliver with Jen Bozza, but I know Eileen and she is wonderful too. We are very blessed to have to employer we have, that is trying to tell IH to leave us alone and just cover us, but I think they are upset that we went over their heads, so they are now telling us that our midwife doesn't have enough malpractice insurance - when they covered her for someone else 2 months ago!! They also told us she had to refile all her documentation, that they had nothing for her on file inthe last 2 years, also a blatant lie. However, thanks to our plan being redefined as to follow NYS standards, this can only take so long before they have to give us approval. I really thought we were done, but like I said, it just seems like IH is mad that we overstepped them. Best of luck to the rest of you!!
