MomCare is a Medicaid-funded program that provides information, referral, and assistance for pregnant women. It includes outreach services for all women presumptively eligible and enrolled in Medicaid under the Sixth Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (SOBRA). Women enrolled in SOBRA Medicaid, who are not enrolled in a managed care plan, are automatically enrolled in MomCare.
MomCare participants will be assigned a MomCare advisor to assist with the following:
- Assistance with finding a prenatal care provider
- Facilitate contact with choice counseling for enrollment in a managed care plan.
- Provide information on resources available such as WIC (Women, Infants, Children) Nutrition Program and the Healthy Start Risk Screening.
Choosing a Doctor or Midwife
If you have not already chosen a prenatal care provider, your MomCare Advisor can provide a list of available providers in your area. It is extremely important to have prenatal care as early as possible to give your baby a chance for a healthy start in life!
Choosing a Medicaid Managed Care Plan
Pregnant women on Medicaid now receive their health care through a Medicaid Managed Care Plan. For Santa Rosa County residents, your options are Humana and Integral. You will receive a letter from the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) advising you on choosing a plan by a specific date. It is important that you contact your Choice Counselor as soon as possible to choose a plan, otherwise one will be chosen for you. If you currently have a prenatal care provider, check with their office to see which plan(s) they accept.
