We work hard to make sure you are covered. Please review our list of contracted insurance providers to see if your insurance will work with Bloomin' Babies Birth Center.

If we do not have a contract with your insurance carrier your actual out-of-pocket expenses may be less by birthing at the birth center than at a hospital. Please contact your health insurer to review prenatal, labor and delivery, and post-partum care costs at a hospital and at a birth center.

After the initial registration fee of $250 (less if paid in full at your first appointment), the birth center package costs around $8000. The package includes all prenatal care, labor and delivery, facility fee, and post partum care. The average non complicated hospital birth costs $10,000 to $12,000 or more with an additional $3,000 to $5,000 for physician fees. You have the choice of where you want to spend your healthcare dollars.

If you do not have insurance, or do not want to bill insurance, or want to pre-pay in-full prior to delivery, we are happy to explore payment plan options with you.
