  • If you are on medicade it does not automatically cover the baby, you have to apply for baby on its own. If baby does not qualify for medicade, then Healthy Families will automatically send you an application for them (at least thats how it worked for us)

  • 90% of the time if you are on Medicaid the baby is covered for the first year of life and you are covered for 6 months post partum If you have any other questions you should contact the 1 800 number that is either on your card or came when you were accepted.
