+ We Accept DSHS
All DSHS health insurance starts out as Provider One. Once established, you select and/or are assigned an insurance carrier that supports DSHS coverage.
- The Birthing Inn is contracted with many of the insurance carriers through DSHS; however, some companies are more supportive of out-of-hospital birth than others.
- If you do not specify an insurance carrier through DSHS, you will be assigned one automatically. This choice of insurance carrier can affect your experience. If you are using DSHS, we suggest that you sign up with Community Health Plan of Washington, or with Amerigroup. These two companies are generally quite supportive of out-of-hospital births, and we have had good experiences working with them.
- At the time you register at TBI, you must present both the Provider One card as well as the card from your assigned insurance carrier.
If you have DSHS insurance, you do not have to provide credit card information at the time of registration per our financial policy. However, the reservation fee is still required to reserve your stay.
