How to Request Insurance Reimbursement for mumda Doula Services:

  1. Pay your doula in full.
  2. Get a receipt from mumda, LLC which includes the following information:
    • The doula’s name & address
    • The doula’s social security number/taxpayer ID number and/or NPI number
    • Diagnosis Code (V22.2, intrauterine pregnancy/ V24.2, routine postpartum follow up)
    • The CPT code for the services provided ( 99499, labor support/ 99501 and/or 99502, postpartum care)
    • Taxonomy Code (374J00000X)
    • mumda’s Business Tax ID Number
    • The date and location services were provided
    • The doula’s signature
    • The mother’s name
    • Total charge for services
    • Dates & amounts of payments
    • Payment method
  3.   Submit the invoice with a claim form to your insurance company or flexible spending account company’s claim department.
  4.   Within a month, you should receive a response telling you either that:
    • They need more information before they can process your claim.
    • This is not a covered expense.
  5.   Do not be discouraged. Prepare a new packet to resubmit to your insurance company for a secondary review,   and copy everything in the packet to the insurance company’s CEO explaining why you feel services should   be covered. In this resubmission packet, you should include the following:
    • Another copy of the receipt
    • A letter from you to the CEO explaining why you think you should be covered as well as why you felt the need for a doula and how you believe the doula was beneficial to your health
    • DONA’s position paper
    • Ask your doula to send you the following and include in your packet:
      1. A copy of her certification (if she is certified)
      2. Other credentials or relevant training
      3. A letter detailing her training and experience and what she did for you
  1.   If they refuse it, write a letter to Health Services requesting that they review the claim, as you feel it was a    cost-cutting measure and they should cover the most.
  2.   Be persistent. Make phone calls if necessary. If your claim is ultimately denied, cal and ask for a specific  reason why. If they refer to your policy, ask them exactly what clause and what wording in your policy excludes  doula services. They may not pay your claim, but they will consider it for the future

❤️Reposted❤️ . "To the mom hiding in her bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down her cheeks.. To the mom who is so tired she feel likes she can't function anymore and would do anything to lay down and get the rest she needs... To the mom sitting in her car, alone, stuffing food in her face because she doesn’t want anyone else to see or know she eats that stuff… To the mom crying on the ycouch after she yelled at her kids for something little and is now feeling guilty and like she is unworthy… To the mom that is trying desperately to put those old jeans on because all she really wants is to look in the mirror and feel good about herself… To the mom that doesn’t want to leave the house because life is just too much to handle right now… To the mom that is calling out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way she wanted it to… To the mom that feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd... You are enough. You are important. You are worthy. This is a phase of life for us. This is a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life. In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. And it's hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don't always talk about it, but it's hard and it's not just you. You are enough. You are doing your best. Those little eyes that look up at you - they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough. Those little hands that reach out to hold you - they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world. Those little mouths eating the food you gave them - they think that you are the best because their bellies are full. Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours - they don’t want anything more. They just want you. Because you are enough. You are more than enough, mama. You. Are. Amazing." . . . , . . . . . . . #pregnancy #doulas #doula #mumda #childbirtheducation #placentaencapsulation #birthwithoutfear #babybump #lactation #breastfeeding #babywearing #babywrap #babywearinglove
