I'm fortunate in the sense that ours will be free, whether its vaginal or C-section.. Or I think we have to pay $25 dollars for something. Thank goodness for tricare, I told DH after he gets out of the military we're only having one more baby, because even with insurance sometimes it costs an arm and a leg to give birth!
Lol.. I figure my kid will really enjoy a Cinco de Mayo birthday come age 21
But my mom was 10 days late with me and my brother... not sure if they're better at dating the pregnancies now or if I'm doomed to also have a late baby.
lisa- I changed insurance carriers before we started TTC for this very reason lol. This time around we will just pay 100.00 per day that we are at the hospital and that's it, everything is 100% covered. We have an out of pocket maximum of $500, so anything past five days is free.
With my last pregnancy I'm not entirely sure what my portion was but I know the cost of my hospital bill was just above $10,000. You get a bill from the hospital, a separate bill from the doctor who delivered you and another from your anesthesiologist, if you have one. You can get a ball park estimation from the hospital you are delivering at from a vaginal or c-section by calling. Then ask you OB's office how much s/he charges to deliver.
