Re: Denied Prenatal Care?
I can get testing done somewhere else, but it would be OOP because it wouldn't be a covered provider. Basically, any provider in my insurance is going to refuse care, and any other provider would not be covered. My midwife actually recommended this OB, so he either changed policies recently or has been mis-labelled as HBAC-friendly.
I would rather not lie to a provider, regardless - my goal was to have someone who would know my case should I need to change my plans and go to the hospital, rather than whoever was on call. Lying would definitely come out in the end, and I don't need the extra stress of hiding my intentions.
I am trying to see if my PCP could order just the testing I need (glucose, U/S, UA), but I think after some soul-searching that this has made me more determined to avoid the OB/hospital experience entirely.
