Q) I have Obamacare Insurance. My daughter is pregnant. Does she qualify for Medicaid to cover her medical expenses and child birth?
A) Your daughter can get assistance with Medicaid if she is low income and have no health insurance – Pregnant women are eligible for Medicaid if they meet the citizenship and low income requirements listed above. It is important to add that if a woman is pregnant, then both she and the child will be covered by Medicaid insurance. Another important detail to keep in mind is that a woman does not have to be single in order to be eligible for Medicaid. If a woman and her husband meet the requirements listed above, then she and the child can still be eligible to receive Medicaid benefits. 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.
