The Report Card gives a structured and acceptable way to express your feelings. It provides the kind of honest feedback that's hard to come by—often illuminating issues that a couple didn't realize were important. This process often shows how the couple's perceptions can differ and will help open up lines of communication to make improvements. Dr. Lopez suggests that this Report Card be used on a weekly basis during the date night, she believes that open communication is the center to having a thriving partnership.

6. So, What Happens When You Look At The Cost Of A Prenatal Childcare Course And You Think, Oh Crap, That’s Expensive?

I know, when you are preparing for a baby, you have a lot of things on your mind and a lot of demands on your wallet.
Did you know that your prenatal childcare course may be covered by insurance? And that you can use your flex savings or health savings accounts to pay any difference?

7. How Do You Get Your Prenatal Childcare Education Course Covered By Your Insurance?

The first thing you have to do is call your insurance and find out what you are eligible for. Grab your insurance card.
On the back there is a number to call.
Call them.
Tell them you want to take a prenatal childcare class and ask what the process is to have part or all of your class covered.
They will be able to tell you what and how much they will pay towards classes. Most insurance plans cover either partially or in full.

8. What Is The Normal Process To Have My Prenatal Childcare Education Course Covered By Insurance?

Once you know how much your insurance will cover for you for your class, you need to know how to do it.

Most of the time you will pay out of pocket for the class. Then you will have to submit a form and your receipt to your insurance company.
If you purchase the Dancing Into Parenthood course you may immediately print out the reimbursement form that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

9. What Codes Do I Need To Give To My Insurance Company To Have My Prenatal Childcare Education Covered By Insurance?

There are two pieces of information you need to give your insurance company when asking about coverage.
This is the CPT code so they can appropriately document the purpose and the diagnosis code,that tells them why you should be covered.
The insurance CPT code for prenatal childcare classes is: S9444. You may also need this: Diagnosis code Z32.3, which is for prenatal childcare education.

10. What If I Don’t Have Insurance Or Money To Pay For A Course?

Preparing for a baby is expensive. I do not know what your options are for other classes, but when it comes to Dancing Into Parenthood, we have scholarships for moms who can’t afford classes, but really need to participate. Reach out and ask us about our options for families experiencing hardships.
Send your inquiry to info@drdivinalopez.com

11. Why Should I Spend Money On Prenatal Childcare Classes?

Newborn care classes can be an investment that protects not only your baby’s health but your financials as well.
Here are just some of the benefits of taking a proper prenatal and childcare education class:

  • Reduce your risk of feeling confused when baby arrives
  • Reduce the risks of making the same mistakes that many new parents make leading to urgent and emergency care visits
  • Decrease the anxiety of becoming a new parent
  • Have virtual support that you can always refer to in the comfort of your home
  • Reduce the risk of postpartum depression
  • Increase the odds your baby will be happy, safe and healthy
  • Need fewer calls and visits to your baby’s doctor
  • Learn how to make your home safe for your baby
  • Increase your knowledge on what is happens when you bring home baby
  • Create the best experience possible for your new family
  • Deeper bonding and strengthening of your family
  • Make connections and friends that can support you in this new stage of life

When you are better prepared for your baby, you build a better foundation for your family, which means that you will have peace of mind in the long run as well.

12. What If I Don’t Want To Prepare For My Baby Through A Class?

That’s fine! Classes can be mega empowering and a great way to connect. But sometimes you are too busy, too broke, or truly just need a light refresher.

13. When Should I Start A Newborn Care Class?

A good time to start the class in your second or third trimester. You want to complete the program before the baby arrives. That mean giving yourself time to watch the videos each week and read the pdfs.

14. To Summarize, Are Newborn Care Courses Covered By Insurance?

Yes, most insurance plans cover prenatal parenting classes either fully or partially. To find out what exactly is covered by your plan, call the customer service number on the back of your card. Give them the code and diagnosis code below:
The insurance CPT code for parenting classes is: S9444.
Diagnosis code Z32.3 which is for prenatal childcare instruction: Newborn Care Class.
Anything not covered by insurance can be paid for with a health savings or flexible savings account or out of pocket.
I’m so excited for you to welcome your baby and hope you have an amazing parenting experience!
