Even though doulas are known to greatly reduce the need for medical interventions during birth (and thereby reducing overall costs), we are currently NOT covered directly by Medicaid or most insurance companies. However, you may be able to submit a copy of your paid invoice to get reimbursed for a portion of your doula fees!!
Review the checklist below, and carefully follow the steps in order to make reimbursement of your fees more likely. (Note: your fees must be paid in full before the insurance company will review your claim.)
Do you have a Health Savings account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA)?
Birth Doula fees and Childbirth Classes are eligible for direct payment or reimbursement with your FSA or HSA. You can pay with your card directly via Paypal, or you may request a check from your HSA/FSA website for the amount.
Email me at email@example.com if you need a copy of your invoice via email, or if you need an additional letter to send to your insurance company.
