I have no medical and am diabetic and think im pregnant. im not sure what to do...right now my husband and i make "to much" money for medi-cal. im so scared and i just want to enjoy being pregnant. maybe i just want to hear im not alone, i dont know. Im not sure if im am pregnant so trying not to stress, i took a test a week ago and it said i wasnt but i am now about 3 days late.

  • The Income Disregard Program is a special Medi-Cal program that provides no-cost prenatal and postnatal care to pregnant women. The income limits for free Medi-Cal under this program are higher than those for other Medi-Cal programs. There is NO property limit. Pregnant woman are also eligible for non-pregnancy related medical care as long as other Medi-Cal requirements are met.

  • I am pretty sure medicad thru the state gives you insurence when your pregnant reguardless of income.
    They just make you pay a small copay .
    I would definatly look in to that.

  • Some states will refuse you for general medical coverage, but once you become pregnant they will get you health insurance that will cover you the duration of your pregnancy.

  • Basic Eligibility Requirements
    Pregnant women applying for the Income Disregard Program must meet the following requirements:

    • Only pregnant women with a share of cost are potentially eligible.
    Note: A share of cost is similar to a monthly deductible. It is the amount for medical expenses that a Medi-Cal beneficiary must pay or be obligated to pay before Medi-Cal will cover any medical expenses.
    • The net nonexempt family income must be under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). (See Income Limits Chart below)
    • Eligibility can begin no earlier than the first day of the month the pregnancy is reported

  • we have two kids, my husband lost his job on Aug 20th, we found out I was preg. Aug 21st. He has yet to find a decent job, we had to get medicaid because we lost our insurance with his job. I'll be 6mths preg on Monday & it's just pure bliss even though on occasion I still have to take my Zofran for my "morning sickness" aka hypermises(sp?)Oh & it seems like I may have come down with an ear infection or throat infection or both as of a few hours ago I've been inpretty bad pain. :( Not to mention our whole family hates the idea that we're having a third baby as if we ask them for anything. You'll be okay hun, so will your fam. A baby is always a blessing for those who wait for it with open arms. God bless.
