National Birth Centers, Inc. is a rapidly expanding company with birth facilities in over thirty-one states across North America. We are dedicated to providing excellence in healthcare as well as a variety of birth options for expecting families. Our corporate headquarters is located in San Antonio, Texas. We have birth centers from the East coast to the West coast. Established birth centers see the benefits of merging with a national company and join our ranks every month. We continue adding additional birth center locations across the United States.
Our individual offices and birth centers employ a variety of healthcare professionals including midwives, nurse practitioners, physicians, doulas and advance practice nurses. Some locations offer care by family/specialty physicians, chiropractors, massage therapists and professional counselors on site, while other sites refer off campus when the need arises. All of our centers offer Mother-Friendly Care, quality prenatal appointments and a variety of options for birth. Some of our locations offer prenatal yoga and/or exercise classes, nutritional classes, diapering and baby wearing classes.
While our individual locations offer private, specialized care for pregnant women, our corporate offices manage advertising, marketing and accounts management including accounts receivable and filing health insurance claims. National Birth Centers, Inc is contracted with hundreds of private payers to insure fair payments for maternity services. Some of the larger payers we have agreements with are United Healthcare, UMR, Humana, Aetna and BCBS in several states. These agreements help us process claims quickly so our birth centers can close the books on healthcare claims by the last postpartum visit or very soon thereafter.
National Birth Centers, Inc. provides quality care for patients by employing the best health care providers in the industry. This quality is evident in the satisfied consumers that return year after year for their child birth needs as well as referring their family and friends to us. We have proven results in the back office through streamlining workflow, accounting, billing, credentialing and contracting using our amazing team of certified coders, medical compliance officers, practice management professionals and attorneys. Employing the best practitioners and the best in the back office provides a synergy that continues to insure our success!
If the health-care provider and place of birth do not provide care that is evidence-based, healthy women are less likely to have optimal, safe, healthy births. Women need to be cared for in a place where they have privacy and feel protected and safe emotionally (not just medically). They need to be cared for by providers who respect the physiologic process of labor and birth and do not interfere unless there is a clear medical indication to do so. Women need to know that hospital and obstetrician care may not be the best way to achieve an optimal birth, and that planned out-of-hospital births (home or free-standing birthing center) are a safe option for healthy women
