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.
Exactly, I would look again at getting pregnancy medicaid. You can get it as a secondary insurance to your primary ( atleastt in my state) and they will pay for any charges leftover after the primary insurance pays. I had it with my first pregnancy as a secondary to my primary insurance and paid no co pays at all. At the time, I did not work and my DH made more than yours and we were only a family of 2 instead of your 3. I would seriously contact your local health dept or dept of social services and ask to speak with someone about it!!!

Re: Question about OB office

I agree at relooking services. From what you told us you would qualify in my state as well. We are also single income and we just signed up for food stamps which will help us out a ton. You might not be able to get medical help services this soon to your due date AND you already have insurance BUT you might be able to get on food stamps which will help in other ways. Did you have your appointment yet? Did they work out a payment plan?
