Newborn fee trap: mother has foreign health insurance but baby has Swiss insurance

We recently received a bill for newborn fees of over 2000 CHF from our hospital in Geneva. The mother has American health insurance (through the university that I work for), while the baby has Swiss health insurance. (We chose Swiss insurance to avoid the reimbursement paperwork required by my university.)

We first tried to get reimbursed for the newborn fees from the mother's American insurance, but they told us that newborn fees are the responsibility of the baby's insurance. Then we tried to get reimbursed by the baby's Swiss insurance, and they said that in Switzerland newborn fees are the responsibility of the mother's insurance.

Has anyone encountered this problem before? Is there anything we can do at this point?

Thanks for any advice!
