Re: How much did it cost you to give birth?

$100 copay for complicated but planned c-section birth. I don't know the billed amount through.

My son's transfer to another hospital cost us $493 discounted cost. 7 week NICU stay nothing out of pocket but the hospital bill was over $50,000 and that included two surgeries and multiple inpatient tests; genetics, MRI, blood, heart and the list goes on ....

We were cover by one comprehensive private policy through ex's work.

Zero. We have excellent insurance coverage and my midwife's office bills as a global service so our insurance paid for everything. This was for my last two births though, with my first I had different insurance and think I paid around $1,200 or so and with my second I might have had to pay some small co-pays but that was it.

Re: How much did it cost you to give birth?

unsure of how much my first was... DH was military and it was covered 100%

second was $3500 but covered by medicaid

third was $3500, and insurance paid a portion of that, they paid maybe $1200?

fourth will be $3500, insurance will pay just $500 - if even that.

Re: How much did it cost you to give birth?

My HB was paid for DD2 at 1350.00 the day before i ended up having an emergency Csect that cost over 37,000 for me (surgery and stay) and 40,000 for the "infant recessitation" that faild and she died.

ETA: out of pocket was about 9,000 (did not include cremation and funeral costs) just the failed birth/Csect

$25 for my first visit. All of the rest was fully covered. Admittance to the hospital (stay about 12 hours) at 18 weeks, emergency c section at 35 weeks, 4 night stay.

About $2,000 all inclusive. Our insurance has changed and my next birth will cost between $6,000 - $8,000 out of pocket. I am not for ObamaCare, but seriously, I work for a huge corporation, something has got to change. It shouldn't cost this much to have a baby.

Re: How much did it cost you to give birth?

I only had to pay $60 co-pay for all 5 of my c-section births. Now, since the company my dh works for go bought out by one of the largest companies in the world and our insurance changed. For a c-section delivery, we would have to pay $6k deductible and then 20% for another $4k, which would mean $10K for one of my cs delivery. So my dh went and got a v, unfortunately. It wasn't the only reason but he quickly did it before we could really think about it because he wanted to get the v done before our insurance changed and he would have to pay the $2k to get it done.

Re: How much did it cost you to give birth?

Dd1 - about $300 for a csection (we had great insurance then)
Dd2 - a little over $2000 (we thought we had horrible insurance at the time. Little did we know...) for a vbac
Ds - just under $7000 for a vbac

One of the reasons we're done with kids is we can't afford the hosp bill to have another. There are other reasons as well but our insurance sucks...

Prenatal care: free
My part of the hospital bill: $1500(deductible for dd and me)

Prenatal care was $1800 and insurance paid that, the hospital bill for us both was around $4-5k. I had an uncomplicated cytotec induction and the only meds I received were PCN and some pitocin for mild postpartum bleeding.

My first two were free because I was on Medicaid, my third cost around $1500 OOP with BCBS.

Military: free
hoping for a vbac now, not sure if there will be fees associated with that since it'll have to be offbase
