When Placing a Baby for Adoption, Does the Adoptive Family Pay for the Hospital Bills?

Every state has different adoption laws related to money. In Florida, the adoptive parents can help pay your medical bills. Care starts with prenatal doctor visits and continues through birth. And some additional medical recovery costs may be covered after the baby is born.

When Placing a Baby for Adoption, How Does the Adoption Agency Help With Medical Bills?

Destiny Adoption will assist you with medical expenses in one of the following ways, depending on your situation:

  • If you have medical insurance, we will help you keep your current insurance plan. And the adoptive family may cover the copay or deductible fees.
  • If you do not have medical insurance, we will help you enroll in Medicaid or a similar state-run program.
  • If you are not eligible for Medicaid, or there isn’t enough time for you to enroll, the adoptive family usually provides financial assistance for medical bills. In some cases, adoption professionals can negotiate your bills for a lower cost. And rarely, the adoptive family’s insurance could cover your hospital delivery.

Adoptive families and courts understand that you may not be able to afford medical bills for your pregnancy and delivery. And this is why each adoptive family sets aside money to assist with medical bills.
