In fact, I know that if you leave a hospital AMA after birth, they can deny paying for the entire birth. So, I wouldn't be willing to sign that unless you clear it with your insurance or unless it is a risk you are willing to take.

I really hope they give you permission. That is just a ridiculous policy.
NOT true. AMA will not get a claim denied
