This program provides coverage to pregnant women with countable income at or below the Medicaid standard, without regard to citizenship or immigration status.

Once enrolled in Apple Health for Pregnant Women, you'll be covered for 60 days after your pregnancy end date, plus whatever days are left during the month in which the 60-day period ends. (So, for example, if your pregnancy ended June 10, your health care coverage would continue through August 31).

This coverage will be in effect regardless of any change in your income, and you receive this post-partum coverage regardless of how your pregnancy ends.

Women who apply for Pregnancy Medical after the baby’s birth may not receive postpartum coverage, but they may qualify for help paying costs related to the baby’s birth if they submit the application within three months after the month in which the child was born.

You're eligible to receive 10 months of family planning-only coverage after your pregnancy coverage ends, regardless of how it ends (miscarriage, termination, or until your baby is one year old). This includes all forms of birth control, permanent methods to stop having children, and health checkups related to receiving birth control. This coverage is automatic.

To determine the pregnant woman’s family size, include the number of unborn children with the number of household members (e.g., a woman living alone and pregnant with twins is considered a three-person household).

If you're a teen (under age 19) and you want your pregnancy-related services to be kept confidential, you may apply for coverage through a paper application process. You may also call the WithinReach Family Health Hotline at 1-800-322-2588 for help with the confidential application process.

Applying for Apple Health coverage

When you’re ready to apply, you’ll need this information:

  • Your household monthly income.
  • The Social Security numbers and dates of birth for each member of your household.
  • Your immigration information, if that applies to you.

Enrollment next steps

If you're accepted, you'll receive a Services Card in about two weeks. Coverage will begin on the first day of the month in which the application was submitted. You'll have the option to select a managed care plan online or you'll be auto-enrolled into a plan. Learn more about enrollment next steps.

If you're not eligible for Apple Health, you may qualify for help with your health insurance or for other health services. The Washington Healthplanfinder website will help you with that.
