New here but I'm in Fruitport, MI and looking for a doctor that will do VBA2C or a low cost midwife.
Welcome! I'm flower's friend. I'm not sure what midwives you've looked at in the area. There are a several good ones. You may get one of them to help you with a sliding scale or possibly help you negotiate with your insurance. I know Yolanda from Birthsong can give you some pointers there. My favorite hospital group is http://www.obgyninfert.com/. The midwives are fabulous, and if you did risk out there are three O.B.s in the practice as well.
The midwives at http://www.obgyninfert.com/ see all their Medicaid clients unless you risk out. I'm not sure about what Michigan's Medicaid covers as far as CPMs or CNMs in a homebirth setting.
I just looked it up, and I guess some CNMs can except Medicaid. I seem to remember a CNM home midwife in Muskegon when I was looking for myself that was willing to work with insurance companies. I don't know if she excepts Medicaid or not. As you call around though. I would ask if they offer a sliding scale. It's hard to work in birth. The cost of supplies and training is higher than what people are able to pay here in Michigan.
