Re: average hospital costs?
Typical charges for a vaginal birth would be about $10-$20k, depending on how long you're there and how much "extra" stuff you get - pain meds, etc. Insurance discount might knock it down to $5-$10k, and you'd be looking at 10% of that amount.
Our insurance had a $200 deductible, $2000 out of pocket max, and 20% coinsurance for drs appts, 10% for hospital inpatient stuff. I met the out of pocket so essentially paid $2000, then her billing was entirely separate after she was born, though not NEARLY as much $.
