It appears very straightforward that my FSA (I'm a federal employee using FSAFEDS) will cover a midwife as a reimbursable expense, but I will need to provide an itemized receipt. My midwife has most out-of-pocket clients and doesn't have a billing process. I'm planning to put together the receipt and have her sign off on it.
Anyone have experience with this or recommendations about billing codes or technical jargon to include on the receipt?
Here is a link with quite a bit of basic information:
So, the things you will need to know would be the diagnosis code (first pregnancy? subsequent pregnancy? any complications relating to pregnancy?)
Place of service: office? Home? Birth center? Hospital?
And then what specifics are you billing for? Global care? Individual prenatals and postpartum visits? any medications or tests?
Dates of service: If you are using the global code, that is a bit easier (in my opinion), and otherwise you will need to write down the dates of each appointment and make it itemized.
