Baby Your Baby

Financial Assistance with Prenatal Care

The Baby Your Baby program offers financial help on a temporary basis to Utah women who are pregnant and do not have the money to pay for prenatal care. Baby Your Baby can help finance a pregnancy through a form of Prenatal Medicaid.

How to Qualify for Baby Your Baby

When applying for prenatal Medicaid, the Baby Your Baby representative will look at your gross monthly income (before taxes) for the current month and also the number of people in the family (including the unborn baby).
 

If your income and household size are within the requirement guidelines, the representative will assist you with filling out an application and grant you a temporary prenatal Medicaid status. A state Medicaid representative will contact you to get additional information so you are able to receive Medicaid benefits.

 

Baby Your Baby is only temporary! You must apply for Medicaid as soon as possible. Only one Baby Your Baby temporary service can be issued per pregnancy, so it is important that you turn in a Medicaid application to continue receiving Medicaid Services. 

Once your Medicaid application is processed, your traditional Medicaid card will cover the rest of your pregnancy along with the hospital stay and delivery charges.

If you think that you may qualify for Baby Your Baby Financial assistance please call for an appointment at the office nearest where you live (see locations).

You may also call the Baby Your Baby Hotline at 1-800-826-9662 with any questions or for more information about prenatal or early childhood services available in your community.

Selecting a Health Care Provider

After you are approved for the Baby Your Baby Program, make sure you are selecting an approved Medicaid provider. It is best to choose a doctor or nurse midwife that is Medicaid approved so you wont have to change health providers when you qualify for traditional Medicaid. When contacting your provider of choice to schedule your initial visit, please ask them if they accept Medicaid.

Your Medicaid insurance number will be accessible to your provider.

If you have questions or would like more information, please call the Baby Your Baby Hotline at 1-800-826-9662, or visit http://www.babyyourbaby.org/.
