Re: Question about OB office

It's only if I need a repeat c-section (which they know I am trying for a vbac). Plus everytime I go in I am making payments on my other OB bill granted its not much but at least im paying them something. And no we cannot get any government assistance we already tried that and Apparantly DH makes "too much" money. So our rent and car payments are a little more important to us at this time then paying on a bill that quite frankly doesn't even make sense to us. Plus like I had mentioned we have a prepaid visa card from my insurance which contains almost $1000 that we can use towards that bill, my dad just has to activate it, so we obviously plan on using that, just not sure when we can yet.
I really think you need to look into the assistance again, if you dh's income is all that you have then there is no reason you wouldn't qualify. DH made more than that with our last and, although we didn't need it, we qualified for medical assistance. With your rent that high, then having to pay other necessities, it would look like you have more going out than in. In my state that automatically qualifies you. I hope you get it figured out. We probably wouldn't be able to completely prepay our delivery either, I am happy my ob doesn't require it.
