I JUST MOVED TO INDIANA AND NOW IT SEEMS EVEN HARDER TO GET INSURANCE. I AM TRYING TO FIND A JOB BUT MANY PEOPLE WONT HIRE ME BECAUSE I AM PREGNANT AND IT IS NOTICABLE! I HAVE NO INCOME BESIDES MY BOYFRIEND AND HE WONT HELP PAY FOR THE INSURANCE. ANY IDEAS OF WHERE I CAN GO OR WHAT I CAN DO I REALLY NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR! HELP!

  • he wont help pay for the insurance to cover the birth of HIS child? i think there is another issue besides insurance here.

    most states medical programs automatically qualify you when you are pregnant, regaudless of income level, look into that, its probably your best bet. and they usually cover the baby and you for the 1st year regaudless of income. good luck w all that.

  • 1-800-889-9949

    and that is their phone number. they would probably put you in contact with someone local. things can be very sloooow moving with state stuff like this but you have plenty of time just get started now. :)

  • First, I'd leave a guy who contributed to getting me pregnant and now doesn't want to contribute to insurance so his baby can have prenatal care. That is crazy.

  • There may be waiting periods if you are new to the state. How long have you lived in the new state? Have you officially changed your residence. States will not give out insurance aid if you are not a resident...imagine how much fraud would go on if they did?

    I would suggest looking into the laws of your new state and see if there are any waiting periods. A good place to start would probably be the DMV.

    Good Luck
