Melissa, I live in the Hudson Valley, about an hour or so north of NYC. Hi neighbor!

NY does have a stipulation in their health care laws that states that insurance companies have to pay for homebirth (or rather that if your insurance doesn't cover a midwife that does homebirth that they have to cover it as an out of network expense), therefore all the homebirth midwives in NY don't take insurance, therefore you can get reimbursement through your insurance company. Some midwives will do the paperwork for the insurance company for you, and others won't. My midwives do it all for us, but I know a lot that don't.
