Please be advised of Heritage Women’s Center policy concerning your pregnancy and insurance coverage. Heritage Women's Center does not accept TennCare/Medicaid in any form. If TennCare/Medicaid becomes your primary or secondary insurance at any time during your pregnancy, we will not be able to continue as your provider.
Unlike other types of medical services, obstetric care is billed globally, and will be billed at the end of your pregnancy. The global fee includes routine visits and delivery charges. Please note that this is the physician’s obstetric fee only, and does not include hospital fees. Please verify with your insurance company that Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital Midtown or TriStar Centennial Medical Center are in network with your plan.
During your pregnancy, providers may order other services such as ultrasounds from Vanderbilt Center for Women's Imaging Ultrasound Services (615-936-0910), non-stress tests, biophysical profiles, lab work and pathology services. These services are billed to your insurance at the time of service, and are not included in the global care fee. Additionally, the same will apply if you are seen for any problem or condition unrelated to your pregnancy. You may be responsible for a copay, co-insurance and/or deductible for these types of services.
Costs not covered by your insurance include form completion such as disability and FMLA paperwork. The fee for form completion is $25.00+ depending on the number of forms and complexity.
You will be asked to pay an initial OB deposit of $125.00. This will go towards your amount due. Pre-payment for obstetric care is required and will be based on your current year’s benefits.
The total must be paid, in full, prior to your 24th week visit using the payment plan. NO EXCEPTIONS. You should receive this estimate around your 12th week in which you will be ask to sign the estimate. Please note this should be paid with personal debit or credit card, if you use a FSA card you will not be reimbursed until after the delivery. For questions on your estimate, please call 629-255-3880.
