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

The uterus is incredible! And knowing how it works during birth can help us to have a more efficient and less painful experience. Sign me up! 

If you’ve ever been around a cat (or any animal) giving birth, you’ll notice that they tend to find a dark, quiet, private spot. We are very much like our animal friends and need to feel safe when we give birth. This can go haywire in modern maternity care:
❌Bright lights.
❌Beeping noises and machines.
❌People we don’t know/trust.
❌Our own fears and insecurities.
...and more.

The 🔑 to getting out of that fear-tension-pain cycle and fight/flight is to-
✅Prepare your mind ahead of time.
✅Give birth where and with who you feel safest (everyone is different!).
✅Keep your muscles loose + limp during your contractions. The tendency is to fight them and tense up, but that will actually make it more painful and can make it take longer! Believe me, I was super tense during my first birth and it sucked!
✅Keep your mind relaxed too! Easier said than done, as it is also normal to freak out...have someone there who will calm you down. #birthdoula for the win here! There’s a reason that those with doulas statistically have shorter labors ☺️. Prenatal mind prep helps here too. 

Our uterus is amazing. We should brag about it! Tag a pregnant friend- they’ll appreciate it!
