Blue Cross and midwives?

Blue Cross and midwives? Topic: Home buying cover letter
April 22, 2019 / By Aurora
Question: My husband and I are talking about having another baby soon, and I would REALLY like to try and have him or her naturally. I was so disappointed with how the hospital handled my son's birth that I don't want to go through it again. My husband isn't comfortable having the baby at home, and I was just wondering if anyone else had any experience with Blue Cross and midwives? I'm not sure if they're covered, and I can't get a straight answer from Blue Cross. So, anyone else who has been through this and has any advice on how to handle it, I would greatly appreciate it. We have Blue Advantage of Arkansas through my husband's job, but we live in IL.

This would be based on your insurance plan. You don't specify a state or if its an employer insurance or self bought plan. Blue Cross only runs in a few states (a majority of states had Blue Cross Blue Shield but in some state Blue Cross is separate from Blue Shield), so thinking maybe you like in CA (the most common BC). Would need to know more on the plan to determine if covered. The state can make a difference if it's a completely funded group then state legislation can be a factor. I recommend calling your insurance company and asking for a benefits letter on coverage for a midwife. This way you have proof what they quote you.

no I have never had any of my children cut. It's too horrific. Anyway, an awful lot of doctors who do them aren't even urologists. They're the only ones actually qualified to and can actually give you the information about it and it's THEM cleaning up the messes from circumcisions ie corrective surgery and treatments etc. Except for when things are life-threateningly wrong on the spot. That would be the emergency doctors and nurses. And they're common. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ceht-3xu84I watch this - he's a doctor presenting a talk on infant circumcision http://documentaryheaven.com/cut-slicing-through-the-myths-of-circumcision/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6NAT118qA0 circumcision AIDS fraud http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAoc8_fzD2M a Jewish man explaining why he's undergoing foreskin restoration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZgF6TyrAHY medical myths http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acc70D2ApFg&feature=related know the facts before you do it to your child part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPxjhLq3eUQ&feature=relmfu know the facts before you do it to your child part 2 Out of 100 Circumcised boys: 75 will not readily breastfeed post-op 55 will have adverse reactions from the surgery 35 will have post-op hemorrhaging to one degree or another 31 will develop meatal ulcers 10 will need to have the circumcision surgery repeated to fix prior surgical problems/error 8 will suffer infection at the surgical site 3 will develop post-operative phimosis 2 will have a more serious complication (seizure, heart attack, stroke, loss of penis, death) 1 will require additional immediate surgery and sutures to stop hemorrhage 1 will develop fibrosis 1 will develop phimosis 1 will be treated with antibiotics for a UTI (urinary tract infection) 1 will be treated with antibiotics for surgical site infection Of those who do receive pain medication for the surgery (about 4% of those boys undergoing circumcision in the U.S.) some will have adverse reactions to the pain medication injected Out of 100 Intact boys: 2 will be treated with antibiotics for a UTI (fewer if the foreskin is never forcibly retracted) 1 will be told to get cut later in life for one reason or another (fewer if the foreskin is never forcibly retracted) these are current medical statistics and why it's rare in most countries.

It's going to depend heavily on where you live, and which plan you have. You're probably best off calling some local birthing centers and/or local midwives, and asking them about it. If there ARE local midwives that take BCBS, they'll know the ins and outs of it. Also, many, many midwives will offer a prepayment plan that's so heavily discounted, it's less than your deductible/copay combination, for a birth. So look at it from that angle, too. Lastly, men can be very uncomfortable about midwives and home births. You can probably make him more comfortable, with raw numbers and data, about how home births are actually much safer for both babies and mamas, than hospital births - less mortality, and less morbidity. There are gobs of internet sites with numbers. The main thing to remember, is midwives are for LOW RISK births; and their trained in DELIVERING a wide variety of babies, they've actually had more experience than most ob's at delivering with cord around the neck, breech, shoulder distocia, twins, etc. Ob's, if it's not a textbook delivery, they just flat out want to operate - it's easier and faster for them, plus, med schools don't train in anything besides C section any more. Midwives, they know how to work with your body to get the baby out naturally, and if there's a problem that REQUIRES surgery, they can identify it early enough to get you to the hospital on time. Even labor in a hospital, if you need a C section, they can't get you in before at LEAST 20 minutes.

It probably actual relies upon on your plan. I actual have Highmark Blue flow & they actually cover midwives. actual on the city that I stay in there are in basic terms 2 place of work's that deal w/ being pregnant & at those workplaces the dr's there in basic terms cope with particular circumstances, i.e. fertility, being pregnant issues, and so forth. each and every thing is dealt with via the midwives. I artwork for an insurance company & can enable you to recognize in the event that they are no longer providing you with a rapidly answer, it relatively is b/c they do no longer understand what a midwife is. or you could have your answer via now. i did no longer precisely understand what a midwife grew to become into till I have been given pregnant even although I knew a great number of human beings who used one, so i'm no longer able to blame them for no longer understanding. even if, it relatively is their interest to make sure. i do no longer understand each and every thing at my interest yet whilst i do no longer understand the respond, i'm going to discover it out. no longer make something up! deliver an digital mail or write a letter to the insurance company so which you have something in writing whilst they provide you your answer. If that would not artwork, call & ask for a supervisor.

As long as you dont mind 4 different midwives and a couple different doctors making a decision about your labor, I would stick with the hospital.

Lew Originally Answered: Is the blue dye in the blue pen the same compound as the blue dye in the green pen? How do you know?
Could be but most probably not. It is common to produce green inks or other colour media by mixtures of blue and yellow components. But there are green dyes that naturally have this colour - for instance malachite green. Malachite Green is classified in the dyestuff industry as a triarylmethane dye. This is a pure compound and not a blue/yellow mixture. There are other green dyes with different structures available. Even if the ink manufacturer wished to make a green ink from blue / yellow mixture, it is not a foregone conclusion that he will use the same blue that he has used for the pure blue inks. So I think that it is not a certainty to assume that because you have green ink in a pen, that it contains any blue dye.
