in Washington, medicaid will cover 100% of a homebirth if you have a state licensed provider (DEM, CPM, CNM, etc...) no questions asked.
Unfortunately the provider I chose is not state licensed (she's a certified professional midwife, just hasn't done her state cert. yet) so I'm paying out of pocket.
