Questions and Answers about Medicaid Coverage of Prenatal Care for Pregnant Women

For many years, Nebraska’s Medicaid program covered prenatal care for the unborn children of pregnant women, regardless of a woman’s immigration status. But, on March 1, many unborn children of pregnant women lost prenatal care covered by Medicaid. Since this changed happened there seems to be confusion about what services Medicaid will continue to cover. At Nebraska Appleseed, we are working to provide information to individuals, service providers, and public officials about these issues.  We offer you this fact sheet “Questions and Answers about Medicaid Coverage of Prenatal Care for Pregnant Women.” The fact sheet outlines what services Medicaid will still cover.  We continue to work to help all women and babies access to the health care they need through Medicaid.  For now, we hope that you will share this information with those you believe might benefit from learning more.
