This is a tricky question that I get asked by many clients and families. At this time most insurances do not cover a doula. However there ARE a couple of ways your insurance MAY cover a doula, and even childbirth classes!
If you currently use either a Health Savings Account or Flexible Savings Account, you can use those to pay for doula services and/or childbirth classes! Once contracted, I send out a Paypal invoice. Through Paypal you can use your FSA or HSA card to submit payment.
Submit Your Receipt
I have also had a handful of clients and students submit their receipt from me to their insurance for reimbursement. Whether you request my doula services or Birth Boot Camp class, you will receive one of these receipts from me. It’s definitely worth a try! It may take a little work on your end, or time talking to someone on the phone.
In the future, we hope to see insurance companies cover doula services and childbirth education!
