i said yes. i also want to know if my insurance wont cover that.i just want to know the charges here.
Doctor: Dr. Owen, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
Actually, in an emergency your charges will be covered by your insurance anywhere in the U.S. - also delivery of a baby is a total charge meaning that the fee covers the entire prenatal care and the delivery - and for a vaginal delivery this charge is usually about $2500 and about $5000 for a c-section.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
