Posted April 12, 2018 05:22:14 If you don�t have to do any work, but just want to learn about childbirth education and care, you might be eligible for free birth education if it�s offered through your state�s public health insurance exchange.
That means if you are enrolled in a state exchange or a state health care plan and want to receive a free childbirth educator job, you could do so through a job listing in a health insurance marketplace.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has said there are no state mandates to offer free childbirth instruction.
It�s up to the employer to decide whether to offer the free childbirth educators position.
Some employers may also have policies to ensure that no one under the age of 21 is offered a free birth educator job.
State health plans will have to offer all the job openings on their own.
They also will have the right to limit or eliminate the offer to a particular employer.
For example, you would not be eligible to receive the job if your employer only offers the position to people over 21 years old, or if it only offers it to people enrolled in Medicaid.
The same rule applies to health plans that offer private health insurance, including Medicaid, for people over age 21.
If you want to work as a childbirth educator, you must apply for and get the job through a government-run program.
You can get information on the federal government�s free childbirth coordinator program on the Department of Health and Human Services website.
You also can find out if you have to work for your health plan and other health care plans if you do not meet the eligibility requirements.
If your state offers free childbirth programs, you will need to register to work, which you can do through the state�t-federal exchange or the HealthCare.gov marketplace.
