Medical Care for Pregnant Women

You do not need to go without adequate medical attention and help because you do not have medical insurance or the money for medical care. Your state and the U.S. government have programs that can provide you with free or low-cost prenatal care and other medical care. 

Medical Care for Pregnant Women

You and your child may be eligible for free or low-cost health insurance and other medical services.  One common source of free or low-cost medical care can be found through your state Medical Assistance/Medicaid program or your state child welfare program.

Every state also has a health insurance program for infants, children and teens for which your child may be eligible. For little or no cost, the insurance can pay for visits to the doctor, medicine, hospitalizations and more. For more information visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website or contact your state Child Health Insurance Program, local Health Department or call 1-800-311-BABY.

For a more comprehensive list of resources to help you with medical care, please click the link Medical Help for Pregnant Women, Mothers and Children.  For other types of assistance visit the pages Financial Help and Nutritional Help.
