I am moving to NH and am hoping for a homebirth. I currently have MA state insurance soI am thinking I will be eligible for NH state insurance once we move. I have no idea if they will cover the homebirth or not. I was wondering about how much homebirths cost in the NH area. I have been reading around and have found that the prices really vary.

I'm in VT, not NH, but my homebirth plus all prenatal care is about $3K. The homebirth alone (w/o the rest of it) is $2K.

BTW, there is no CPT code for "homebirth", so basically the insurance co does not have to know WHERE you gave birth. They will just receive a claim with all the different coded procedures on it. Nowhere in any of those procedures is there a specific code for giving birth at home. If the insurance you get covers your midwife, you should be fine.
HTH!

A little OT, but I wanted to spread the word that VT Medicaid covers homebirth midwives- everything except the postpartum visits!

Do you know where you're moving in NH?
I know there's a birth center in Peterborough, and they have CNM's that do homebirths. It seems like most states are far more willing to cover CNM services than CPMs... but you never know until you try!

We are moving to Henniker and are planning on using the midwives at The Birth Cottage. The woman I spoke to Tracey Bowen is a CNM. She told me they except state insurance (medicad). Ij ust think it is to good to be true. lol Here in MA that would never happen.

Tracy Bowen is a total sweetheart! We wanted to use the birth cottage but i went into premature labour and ended up a hospital birth. We had private insurance, but I know my SIL had medicaid here in NH and used a CNM, so I'm guessing you'd be fine.
