Mommas...I need some help from someone who knows about getting maternity care through the VA. I'm going to be going to a birth center, which my insurance(Tricare) does not cover (they claim they cover birth centers, just not one anyone within at least 200 miles of me), so right now I will have to pay out of pocket. Luckily they do cover my midwife, just not the ridiculous facility fee. I know it's worth it, but money is tight and I've heard that the VA will cover birth centers but no one at the VA knows anything about getting it covered. (You would think I'm in the middle of nowhere- I'm actually in Boston, this so called state-of-the-art healthcare city is behind the times, at least when it comes to Tricare and VA.) I've tried google, to no avail. Does anyone have experience getting VA to cover birth center or do you know someone who did?
Thank you so much!
