Homebirth in NJ- Tricare Standard, please help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello, my fiance and I are planning for our second child, he is in the Army Reserves. We want to do a homebirth and have just recently learned that Tricare Standard will pay for 85% of the cost!

 

Now the real issue is deciding on a quick, makeshift wedding just for the insurance benefits, but that's another thread haha.

 

So, what I desperately need help with, can anyone help me find a midwife that's in network with Tricare in the Southern NJ area? I have tried to do the online tool on Tricare's website but all of the contact information for the midwives is outdated/incorrect, so I'm sure there's gotta be someone out there!!

 

I need to find an in network midwife ASAP, because I can't go through with a court house wedding unless I know for sure it will benefit us financially!

 

Also, can someone please explain to me what out of network providers are?

 

Thank you!!

we just moved from McGuire AFB, and we had a homebirth there with midwifery care associates, they travel to the base :)  Pam and Louise are very nice and supportive, really loved them, especially for being CNMs, they were very hands off and let me do what I needed!  Good luck to you!
