Q) I enrolled for medicaid in the beginning of my pregnancy. My baby was born 12/15, am I still covered for myself under medicaid? If so for how long? Or do I need to reapply to continue coverage
A) According to Medicaid Website. Once eligibility is established, pregnant women remain eligible for Medicaid through the end of the calendar month in which the 60th day after the end of the pregnancy falls, regardless of any change in family income.
Infants born to pregnant women who are receiving Medicaid for the date of delivery are automatically eligible for Medicaid (known as “deemed newborns”). Medicaid eligibility continues until the child’s first birthday and citizenship documentation is not required.
Keep in mind that the rules for Medicaid eligibility are different for each state. You need to call or visit your state Medicaid Office and speak with a medicaid counselor regarding your coverage.
