Insurance & Payment

The Midwife Center accepts the following payment methods for primary gynecological, prenatal and childbirth care:

– Most PA medical assistance plans, including UPMC for You, Gateway and United Community Plan
– Most local and national private insurance plans, including UPMC, Highmark*, United and Aetna
– If you do not have insurance, we can assist you in applying for medical assistance. If you do not qualify for medical assistance you may be eligible for sliding-scale care. The Midwife Center also offers payment plans.

* If you are pregnant and have Highmark insurance, we welcome you to plan your birth at our birth center. The Midwife Center accepts Highmark insurance for all of its services at The Midwife Center. However, our primary referral hospital UPMC Mercy’s contract with Highmark recently ended and Highmark consumers no longer have in-network access to UPMC Mercy for labor and delivery. You may have the option to pay out-of-network rates (unless you have Highmark Community Blue, which offers no access to UPMC hospitals). Please check with your insurance.

Our primary referral hospital for clients with Highmark insurance is West Penn Hospital. Please see our FAQ for more information.

If you have any questions please contact us at 412-321-6880 or contact your insurance.
