Does Medi-cal pay for Prenatal Care?

I am asking a bunch of questions just so I know. I'm sorry if people find me annoying or anything.

  • Yes, your state's medical assistance program will cover all of your prenatal and delivery. What state are you in? I'll find the link for you to sign up.

  • I am in Minnesota, and you automatically get it if you are pregnant and qualify income-wise. You'll be asked to provide proof of identity, proof of income (paystubs, etc) and proof of assets (your most recent bank statement). Once you show that to your county worker, you'll probably know right away if you get Medi-Cal or not.

  • Sorry, I don't have IM -- actually I'm headed off to bed anyway. Just call your local county office, they will be able to help you with all your questions. :) Good luck!
