  • It depends on the state. Every state has different coverage and different requirments for qualification.
    Talk to your local DHS office and see what it covers, or go to your state's government website.

  • It paid for mine - but it had to be done while I was in the hospital after birth (I delivered vaginally so my tubal was the next day - if you have to have a c-section they'd do it immediately after the baby's out). The only thing I recommend checking out is making sure the doctor/surgeon and hospital both take medicaid - I'd be more worried about the doctor accepting it than it being covered honestly.

  • They paid for mine as well. I had to stay an extra day cause soon as you walk out the door.........they will not do it.

    They waited to do mine cause they had a few scheduled before me, and my son ripped me ( I had a 4TH degree tear!!! Can we say OWwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!) but it may depend on your state......as others said above.

  • I am getting my tubes tied very soon .I had my 3rd son 7 weeks ago. I am on medicaid. In my state Medicaid makes you wait 30 days from the day you sign the papers to get it done. A precautionary thing because it is * permanent *
    Each state is different I believe...just ask your OB's office..they more than likely have the answer for you :)
