Paying for Our Services

We accept most major insurance plans, including many Medicaid managed care plans. Although some plans will claim that we are “out of network,” we are often able to obtain gap exceptions. We also offer discounts and payment plans for self-pay clients.

If you are eligible for Medicaid, you can apply through the New York State Marketplace. Many New Yorkers who do not normally qualify for Medicaid are eligible during pregnancy, because the income limit is higher and the unborn child counts as a dependent. You may be able to use prenatal Medicaid even if you are already enrolled in a commercial insurance plan.

We require that all clients obtain a Verification of Benefits (VOB) report through our billing service, Digital Billing. Digital Billing will explore your plan details, discuss any special requirements with your plan representatives, and contact you to explain their findings. Digital Billing charges a discounted rate of $25.00 for clients who have attended an orientation. When you attend an orientation, you will receive instructions for contacting Digital Billing for a VOB.
