I delivered with Janet Schwab CNM (mentioned above). She was great but has since moved to Colorado....
She used a billing service. Her entire fee was $3500 (which I would've paid if needed). My insurance said they would pay for 80% of PNC (she was out of network) but none of the birth itself because it wasn't in a hospital (I guess they assumed the PNC was in her office, not my house). However her billing service worked it, the insurance sent me a check for $3400!
I think the regular rate for PNC with a CNM is way over $3500, so just billing the regular hospital rate for CNM PNC got her the money.
Whatever they did, it worked!
Ditto. Almost exactly the same story for me. (I used Janet Schwab too.)
