This is the best place I can think of to ask this question, since lots of mamas switch to be with more NB-friendly providers even late in pregnancy.
I am with a very pro-NB OB, who I love, but her vacation time and the ineptitude of the office staff has made it impossible for me to see her and I'm getting frustrated having to spend hours on the phone to get an answer on an issue with my blood pressure. I am not getting the attention I need, so I think it's time to switch.
The problem comes with global billing of insurance. For my last pregnancy, instead of billing every appointment, after delivery they submit 1 claim for all of the care I received. Has anyone with the global billing scheme switched providers late in pregnancy, and if so, how did insurance work?
If it matters, I have blue cross, staying at the same hospital (although they bill separately, so I don't think this would be an issue at all) just switching OBs or maybe to a midwife.
