Additional Expenses

Additional Expenses

Non-routine laboratory costs, cord blood collection for banking, specialist physician examinations, labor coaching, prenatal vitamins and childbirth education classes.

Additional medical care may be needed in individual circumstances and may include medical consultations, treatment, sonograms, special studies, non-routine lab work, etc.  You may not require any of these additional services; however, it is wise to consider the possibility in your financial planning as most doctors, and hospitals require payment at the time their service is rendered.

Financial Arrangements

Hollywood Birth Center accepts most health insurance carriers. If you are paying by insurance, you are responsible for any deductibles, co-payments, and other services necessary during the OB care that the insurance company does not cover. All ultrasounds and laboratory testing will be billed to your insurance provider by the entity providing the service.

For self-pay clients, your full balance is due by the 32nd week of pregnancy.  Fees are payable in installments or in full and may be made in the form of cash, check, money order, Amex, Master Card, or Visa.  Failure to pay in full by 32 weeks will result in suspension of care with a referral to a county hospital.

If you have questions about financial arrangements, please contact the office.  Our office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
