What is LaMOMS for Pregnant Women and Newborns?
The LaMOMS program is an expansion of Medicaid coverage for pregnant women with an income up to 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. Through this program, pregnant women of working families, either married or single, have access to free health care coverage. Medicaid will pay for pregnancy-related services, delivery and care up to 60 days after the pregnancy ends including doctor visits, lab work/tests, prescription medicines and hospital care.
How do I know if I qualify?
Any pregnant woman, married or single, who lives in Louisiana may apply for health coverage. You must meet the income limits. Resources such as bank accounts, cash on hand, cars or property do not count. For example, a woman in a family of four (the unborn child is included in the family size) can have a monthly household income up to $3,225 and still qualify for this program.
