How will your MomCare Advisor help you?

Getting help can be confusing. A MomCare Advisor will contact you once you have been approved for Medicaid. The Advisor will help you get the care and services you need. Your MomCare Advisor will:

  • Explain your Pregnancy Medicaid options
  • Tell you about the services you can get
  • Help you find a doctor or midwife
  • Make a referral to Healthy Start if you are facing difficult issues
  • Help you get into the WIC (Women, Infant and Children’s)
  • Nutrition Program
  • Call to see how you are doing
  • Help you find a doctor for your baby
  • Help you find health insurance for your baby
  • Answer questions you may have
  • Help you get other prenatal services like classes, counseling, or help from other agencies
  • Help you if you have special needs

Choosing your Doctor or Midwife

If you have not chosen a prenatal care provider, your MomCare Advisor will give you a list of doctors and midwives. The sooner you choose, the better.

Our goal is to make sure you get prenatal care as early as possible. The first trimester of pregnancy is a critical period in which all the major body systems begin their development. Having good health at this time is important.

What you need to know about choosing a
Medicaid Managed Care Plan

Medicaid Recipients now receive their health care through a Medicaid managed care plan. You will receive a letter from AHCA advising that you must choose a plan. Otherwise you will automatically be enrolled in one of the four plans. Check with your prenatal provider to see which plans the office accepts.

You must notify the local Medicaid office after your baby is born. The baby will then be put on Medicaid.

You can receive two years of family planning services free. It is important to wait 18 months to two years before your next pregnancy. This is to make sure your body is healthy before you get pregnant again. If you are healthy, your baby is more likely to be healthy.
