Here are the main questions, however, anyone who has other input or experience can respond here or pm me.
-If you carry malpractice, how much is it? And is it based on amount of births?
It is based on the number of births in our state for a homebirth practice. The quotes I got is about $4000 a year for 50 births but it can vary. That was the rate a couple years ago. I think you have to pay for so many births upfront and then any birth you do above that number, they tally it up and you owe that at the end of the year.
-If your state is licensed, does it require you to carry malpractice insurance? Which states do not?
Yes, Florida midwives must have insurance and a form they give to their client so the client is aware of that.
-anyone with a birth center, what is malpractice like for you? I have heard some horror stories about the cost of this, but nothing in the last 3 or 4 years relating to CPM's, not CNM's.
I don't really know but I have heard it's a lot more....like $15K or so.
