Re: average hospital costs?
Do you have a deductible to meet first? And then beyond that do you have a coinsurance?
With DS's birth we had a $25 copay for the initial pregnancy diagnosis, a $500 deductible, and then we were responsible for 20% coinsurance beyond that. When it was all said and done we paid somewhere around $2400ish for my c-section.
With this birth our insurance has changed and we have a $35 copay for the initial pregnancy diagnosis, a $2500 deductible, and then we are responsible for 30% coinsurance beyond that. So if I had another c-section we'd be responsible for $5500 (our max oop). I'm attempting a VBAC though, and if it is successful we'll be responsible for somewhere between $4500-$5500.
