Does anyone know if Medicaid pays for your tubes to get tied?

Or if they do not if they will pay for an IUC where you they place a thing in your uterus so you don't get pregnant for 5 years? Because I have already 2 kids and if i get prego again I want it to be it but I will only have medicaid.

  • It's covered in Pennsylvania. You have to be 21 or have two kids.

  • hey just wanted to let you know my friend is from Atlanta Ga and they WILL pay within the first month she says. if there is a reason for it to be done later, they might still do it. but she said she had it when the baby was born which was within 6 wks. good luck!
