  • Other then a medical card I don't know but you should talk to your local srs office and until then you can get prenatals at wal-mart for $4.

  • I always got my vitamins from the health food store, they are better for you and don't constipate you. And I have been in the same boat no insurance, we made too much money for the state to help. So the hospital and doc office will work with you, just just go in and talk with them. Mine had payment plans for people with no insurance, and it was reasonable. Just give em a call and ask.

  • If you applied for Medicaid for pregnant women they would have gotten you on healthy start first so that you would be covered for the 40 days you have to wait for the Medicaid to kick in. Try going to the health department.

  • Acceptance to full Medicaid takes up to 45 days. You can get presumptive pregnancy medicaid through your county health department, which will cover you for a month until you get accepted for full Medicaid. Give your health dept. a call!
