What happens when a woman veteran has an obstetrics related emergency before enrolling?

What happens in the case when a veteran has an obstetrics related emergency prior to enrolling?
If a women veteran is enrolled and we know she is pregnant, fee-basis care would have been authorized in advance. In the event of an obstetric emergency, she would go to the hospital and the hospital would be reimbursed for services provided under VA contract.

Eligible veterans are encouraged to enroll for VA health care as soon early as possible in the pregnancy to ensure that any maternity care provided by non-VA providers can be reimbursed.
