So, im covered under my dad`s insurance but once my son is born he wont be. Im so confused with this medicaid thing! Do I wait to apply after hes born? Or before? (he`ll be here in about a month) Also, im 17 and I just have a little part-time job at a pizza place, so I make very little, however Im still dependent on my mother..do I bring her forms ALONG with mine? ALSO, ive gone crazy on the website just trying to figure out HOW TO APPLY. does any have any insight they could share?

In most states you are legally an adult at 17 so I don't think you will need your mother forms or anything just make sure you have proof of address and etc. and oh yea his birth certificate from the hospital. Hope I help you out. Good luck.

My dr.'s office actually told me that I needed to do it before she was born so that the labor and delivery would be billed to them and the baby's care in the hospital would be billed to them as well. If you wait til after, it will be billed to you. So I'd do it know and you can get a head start on finding a doctor for your baby! Bt I live in Alabama so it may be different where you are, but I know that your supposed to go to your County's health department to apply.

earthmomma - 2210 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) i am the same with the insurance thing. i have already applied for medicaid, even though i am on my parents insurance. but after the baby is born, then i am supposed to call medicaid and add him to the plan. or at least that is how i understood it. it is confusing and is hard to get someone to help you. i have called their hotline and went into the office and still havent really gotten any answers. i dont know what state u r in, but go to the office in your county and ask them what to do.

I did it when I was pregnant for prenatal care also. If you are covered under your dad's insurance, they may have you just apply for your son. They will tell you what you need to do.

Some things just cant be forgiven. When your going threw a hard time in your pregnancy you should have someone there to love you, guide you, and be there for you mind body and soul. He shouldnt have been putting in extra effort into a personals add. My husband was caught cheating on me with a women he worked with.. I wouldnt call her a women though. People who can do that to a family deserve to have each other. And theres no way you can just forget something like this. At a time when you needed his support the most he should have been there 100 percent. If he was on craigslist whos to say he wasnt on other single sites or even chat rooms. Be strong and stand for what you believe in. No matter what i or any mother has to say think about whats important to you, and would you be able to have complete trust in him again, or would this now be a constsant worry for you. Every women has different morals (hense my hubbys new gf, hers are obviously very different then mine bc i wouldnt be able to do something like that) Make sure you stick with what you believe in, and ask yourself if the doubt and worry would be worth it. -xx
