Yesterday, on http://www.alldoulas.com/, I found a link to this great article that breaks down the process for doulas who want to help their clients try to get reimbursed by their insurance. There were doulas there on the message board who shared that they had been able to get families money from their insurance companies.
I was suprised to learn that at least twenty different insurance companies have paid out some or all of the fee that families paid their doula.
Last night, I got my NPI (National Provider Indentification) number so that families who use me as their doula can try for insurance reimbursement after the birth.
Just another thing that makes my doula services awesome :)
