Q) I have a child. If I get pregnant, will that already count as a family of 4 for medicaid. Or does it not count until the baby is born?
A) According to Medicaid – Having a baby qualifies you for a special enrollment period. This means that after you have your baby you can enroll in or change Marketplace coverage even if it’s outside the Open Enrollment period. When you enroll in the new plan, your coverage can be effective from the day the baby was born. If you already had Marketplace coverage, you can do one of 2 things when your baby is born: (1) Keep your current plan and add your child to your coverage; or (2) change to a different Marketplace plan.
