Effective for dates of service on and after July 1, 2017, the Washington State Legislature provided funding to increase the facility fee payment to birth centers to $1,742.00 (procedure code: 59409 with modifiers SU and 59). 

The Health Care Authority has updated the ProviderOne System to reflect this new rate and published a revised fee schedule for Planned Home Births and Births in Birthing Centers.
