I just called my not-health-insurance provider to request a form for submitting my midwife expenses. I’m not due for another 17 weeks, and I haven’t even made an official choice of midwives yet, but I want to have the form in hand so I can get it ready asap.
I love Samaritan Ministries, and it’s not only because they have such a great referral program. [hint, hint...tell them KimC sent you.]
I love them also because they encourage me to care how much my medical care costs, even when it doesn’t come out of my pocket. When I had traditional health insurance my only concern was how much it would cost out of my own pocket. Now my perspective is different.
Many midwives gives a hefty discount if you pay by 36 weeks. I don’t want my Christian brothers and sisters to pay more than is necessary for our baby’s birth. I want to save them money just as much as I want to save money myself, and so I’ll be submitting my need just as soon as we make a choice – with the blessing and permission of Samaritan Ministries – to save us all $400.
