So I am in TX and have a military hospital I gave birth at two years ago just down the street. I will not go back there! I have an appointment to meet a midwife, not sure what kind, you think I would know! LOL This Thursday. She said that Tricare will cover it but that they do not bill till after the birth. She said I will have to pay monthy to meet the full amount 2400 and then I will be the one who get the money back from Tricare.
Does this sound right?
They will pay before you give birth, but not the whole amount. Yes you do receive the check in your name, then you pay your midwife. I did not have to pay monthly with my midwife..that is her choice. I paid an intial $350 to keep her as my provider. Then i paid her when i got the money. After i gave birth, we paid her the remaining balance. And IF tricare pays us more we will get refunded. If you don't have the monthly payment money, see if she will give you a bill so you can submit yourself.
