  • When I was pregnant, I had the same exact question as you did. I was on medicaid too. Kansas Medicaid, the program I was on, covered the baby automatically for the first year, pre-natal care, and delivery. I have to reapply when my son is a year old. Call your medicaid office though.

  • He will automatically be covered under your plan. If you have any questions about what you need to day afterwards you'll need to call your Insurance carrier. Each one is different. Mine covered my kids under my name for 90 days and then sent me their cards... I didn't have to do anything.
