Medi-Cal Programs: Pregnancy

Medi-Cal covers prenatal care, labor and delivery, and postpartum care.

Individuals who are pregnant should be sure to answer “yes" to the application question, “Are you pregnant?" For Medi-Cal, a pregnant person is counted as two people, and income is calculated differently. This means that some people whose income was considered too high for Medi-Cal may be able to get coverage through Medi-Cal while they are pregnant.

In some cases, it is also possible to qualify for pregnancy-related Medi-Cal and also be eligible for a Covered California health plan. If so, you are not required to enroll in both programs.
