Vermont mandates insurance coverage for licensed midwives

Great news from Vermont:

“One of the things that’s extremely important to our families is to be able to have a choice about the way we bring Vermonters into this world,” said Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont.

Shumlin signed a bill into law Wednesday requiring Vermont insurance companies to pay for the prenatal care, deliveries and aftercare that licensed midwives provide.

Insurance coverage for midwifery is a win-win situation. It saves insurers and the state money, and parents get the care they want.
