Did you Know?
Many Insurance Plans Cover Birth Preparation Classes! Not Sure If Yours Does? The First Thing To Do Is Grab Your Card, Look On The Backside And Call The Number.
They Will Probably Ask You For A CPT (Current Procedural Terminology) Code And A Diagnosis Code. The CPT Code For Childbirth Education Classes Is S9436 And The Diagnosis Code Is Z32.2. Your Insurance Company Will Then Let You Know The Steps You Need To Take To Get The Classes Covered.
Also, Some Insurance Companies May Require A Letter Of Medical Necessity. This Is Basically A Letter From Your OB Stating That Childbirth Education Classes Are A Necessary Part Of Your Prenatal Care. You Should Be Able To Obtain This Easily From Your Doctor, Just Let Them Know You Need It!
If You Have An FSA Or HSA Account, You May Be Able To Either Pay Out Of Pocket And Submit A Receipt For Reimbursement, Or Use Your FSA/HSA Card To Pay For Classes. Again, It’s A Good Idea To Contact Your FSA/HSA Company To Verify If Childbirth Education Is An Eligible Expense. If You Are Using Your FSA/HSA Card You Will Need To Call Us To Book.
Finally, Your Insurance Company May Ask You For An Itemized Receipt For Reimbursement Purposes. If This Is Something You Need, Just Email us below And We’ll Be Happy To Provide You With One. We Wish You All The Best!
