I am about 23 weeks pregnant, quit my job due to health complications, need to apply for medicaid ASAP

Q) My name is Heather. I am about 23 weeks pregnant and haven’t been to the doctor yet due to not having any income, insurance or transportation. I was forced to quit my job due to health complications during the earlier weeks of my pregnancy and planned to get an abortion but finances disallowed me that option. Now that I’m too far along for an abortion and must carry the child to term, I am in need of assistance. I don’t have a phone to call on but I can text from phone number 8*******681 or can be reached via email at i**********r0@gmail.com. I no longer have a form of transportation as of yesterday morning so I’m limited on travel. Will you please contact me so that I may apply for medicaid service ASAP? I’m due on January 21, 2016 so I’m limited on time as well. Thank you. respectfully heather

A) Medicaid is a government sponsored health insurance program for low-income families who have no medical insurance or inadequate insurance. All states offer Medicaid or a program similar to Medicaid to help pregnant women receive adequate prenatal and postpartum care. The general guidelines for eligibility for Medicaid are set by the Federal government; however each state sets up their own specific requirements for eligibility and these can differ from state to state. As a low income pregnant or young mother, please contact your local medicaid or social service office and apply for Medicaid.

  1. I have a question about what can be bought on Medicaid. I have noticed when I am in line people purchasing items like, bakery cakes and coca colas. I was under the impression that medicaid was for the essentially for survival. I do not consider birthday cakes a exxential item. Please inform me about what my tax dollars will cover. I do not have a problem with providing a lone star card for those in need but I do not like to see it abused.
