Reimbursement Options for Prenatal Classes
1) Many health insurance companies offer reimbursement for all or part of prenatal classes including Childbirth Education, Breastfeeding, Newborn Care, and Infant CPR, safety classes and lactation consultations. You must contact your own health insurance company to confirm your policy’s specific reimbursement benefits.
2) Flexible Spending Account (FSA)/ Health Care Savings Account (HSA) may be used to pay for all or any remaining balance of prenatal classes. Contact your own FSA/HSA to inquire about specific reimbursement policies. To learn more about Flexible Spending Accounts reimbursement, see the www.IRS.gov page.
Individual health insurance policies and reimbursements vary greatly. Please contact your health insurance company to confirm your benefits for reimbursement. Here is some additional information your health insurance company may ask you to provide.
