We want to help low in-come families in Texas have a natural birth at the birth center if this is their desire! If you have a valid Medicaid card, we want to help.
We are already recognized asTraditional Medicaid providers and our application with the United Medicaid Plan is pending. But even if your plan isn’t covering the birth center yet, we will offer a special rate with financing to make our care more affordable.
Call our office during regular office hours and ask for Dona if you need help answering questions about Medicaid. 361.883.2229
Our midwives and facility are approved by Traditional Medicaid. However, we have learned that pregnancy Medicaid patients are required to choose a Medicaid mananged care plan and cannot remain under Traditional. There are three of these plans available in our area: They are the Driscoll Plan, the United Plan and the Superior Plan. We cannot tell you which plan to choose. They each have their own benefits and you should make your choice based on which plan is best suited for your own needs. However, we can tell you that we are in the process of applying to United Care Program and that our application is pending. We hope to be approved in 2019 but do not know when or even if that will happen at this time.
Once we get approved for a Medicaid Care Program like the United Plan, we will be able to bill Medicaid for all health care of our patients using the plan for which we get approval. In the mean time, we cannot collect anything from Medicaid.Therefore, we are offering some financial assistance to those on Medicaid, no matter which plan they have. We want to make our care as affordable as possible to everyone. We just can’t afford to not get paid for all we do.
If you have Medicaid and are under a plan that will not currently cover our care, we are willing to offer an additional 50% off of our usual reduced Self-Pay rate plus the registration fee as long as the balance can be paid by the 36 weeks’ gestation.
Since Medicaid covers medical expenses like labs and sonograms with other providers, these will still be covered while you are under our care because we do not do them at our center. We order labs and sonograms from other providers who do accept all forms of Mediciad. Our consulting physicians accept the United Care Plan. So you might want to keep this in mind when choosing your plan if you want to come to us for care in case you need to see one of our consulting physicians for a complication. The hospitals we use will accept all Medicaid plans. So in the event of a transport or emergency, your expenses would be covered by Medicaid even if you were under our care before then.
If you choose CCBC and are on Medicaid, your total out-of-pocket expense under our care will be reduced to only $2200 until after we get accepted under a plan. After that, you will not be required to pay for any future medical care with us if you have the plan that accepts us. Please call us for details.
We also want you to know financing is available through United Medical Credit. Use the link below to apply online. If you are accepted, they will cover the $2200 and then you can pay them back with very low monthly payments. If they do not approve your application, then call us anyway. We might be able to offer you direct financing for a small financing fee but the payments will be higher through us because we need the loan paid off much sooner than United Medical Credit. We require that you try with United Medical Credit before asking us to finance. Click on the banner below to start your application now.
