Most midwives including Sego Lily Midwifery do not direct bill insurance carriers. Some clients have had success receiving reimbursement from their carriers and we can provide you with an itemized / global bill upon request. We provide you with necessary global service codes. If your care is more complex such as necessitating transport, you are responsible for submitting itemized claim to your insurance. We are not a billing service that itemizes care.
For those without healthcare insurance: Consider Community Health Share Organizations such as: Christian Healthcare Ministries, Solidarity*, Liberty Health Share and Samaritan Ministries have been consistent payers. *Solidarity recently provided clients with full reimbursement in December 2021 and we are in their system.
Midwife Heather Whitley is listed as in-network provider for Regence BCBS, Blue Shield California & out-of-network provider for UHC and Cigna with clients receiving reimbursements. *Call your insurance to verify benefits and provider and contact Heather for her NPI number.
Clients may pay with their HSA/FSA If paying by card of any kind, we add a 3.5% fee to cover credit card fees passed to us by Square. Some clients have their HSA firm cut a check to avoid card fees.
Credit Card and Venmo Payments
We gladly accept cash, check, VENMO or credit card payments. Cash/Check is preferred method as there are no fees to you or the practice. Venmo is now charging businesses for use and 2% will be added to Venmo transactions. Credit card fees are 3.5%.
