Pregnant Women

Coverage Details

Medicaid for Pregnant women only covers services related to pregnancy including:
  • Prenatal care, delivery and 60 days postpartum care
  • Services to treat medical conditions which may complicate the pregnancy
  • Childbirth classes and family planning services


A pregnant woman may apply for this program before or after she delivers. A woman who has experienced a recent pregnancy loss may also be eligible. If a pregnant woman is covered by Medicaid on the date she delivers, her newborn child may be eligible for Medicaid up to age 1 without a separate application. (An unborn child is always counted in the family size.)
