If a woman does qualify based on income, we help her get Presumptive Eligibility coverage so that she can receive the health care she needs right away. (Presumptive Eligibility is temporary access to immediate prenatal healthcare while an application is being reviewed, processed and approved for Medicaid or CHP+).
Once the baby is born, it may be eligible for Medicaid or CHP+ benefits as well. Our Healthy Communities staff will help determine eligibility for the child and also follow up with the mother to make sure the child receives all of the care he or she needs.
Are you pregnant and don’t have health insurance? Please contact us.
