  • Only if the facility doing the ultra sound takes medicaid. I don't know of any that do. It's considered optional.

  • I believe they will pay for it if it's ordered by your OB but not if it's just personal choice! I am high risk and I did not have a 4D ultrasound but I had a clearer ultrasound in color done at a cardiologists office due to the fact my first was born with a small VSD (a hole between the ventricles of the heart)....medicaid covered that ultrasound.

  • If your Dr deems it necessary then you can get them as often as they prescribe. I had a friend who was high risk and got one done once a week. That is in NH at least.

  • Perhaps if the dr orders it not just because you want one though. Of course any insurance is like that.

  • they will pay for level 2 ultrasounds, which are done if there is a concern and if your OB orders one.

  • I think it does if it's medically necessary and ordered by a doc....

  • Previous answers are correct.

    If your OB orders it then yes, if medically necessary.
