Incidentally, if you know of any insurers who specifically cover homebirths (many cover midwifery services, _other_ than a homebirth itself), please let me know! My understanding is that homebirth coverage is relatively unusual.
It really depends on where you live. In FL, for example, JEB BUSH
(believe it or not) pushed through a bill that required all insurance companies covering maternity care to cover care by an LM, so in a sense covering homebirth. There, Medicaid covers homebirth, and I had two births paid for by Tricare (military insurance).
Here in NC, Tricare's not required by law to cover it (yes I am doing a legal CNM homebirth), so they won't.
