When you check with your insurance providers, if they say they have no listings for midwives, be sure to ask them to look under "nurse-midwife." My network had no listings under "midwife" or "certified nurse midwife," but had plenty in the nursing section.
Speaking of Texas, there is a class-action suit in that state to require insurance providers to cover midwife-assisted births. I don't know all the details, but I believe MANA or ACNM have links on their websites.
In Florida homebirth licensed midwives are covered by Medicaid, though most Medicaid folks don't even know this.
