Pregnant Individuals








*The income standards listed in these examples are subject to change annually every April. 
** Household includes the unborn child. For example, a single individual expecting one child is a 2-person household.

This program provides coverage to pregnant individuals with countable income at or below the Apple Health standard, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Your household size includes yourself, the unborn children, and additional household members such as a spouse and children.

After-Pregnancy Coverage

If you are enrolled in Apple Health coverage and are pregnant, your coverage will automatically transition to After-Pregnancy Coverage (APC) once your pregnancy ends. APC lasts for 12 months, starting the first day of the month after your pregnancy ends. For example, if your pregnancy ended June 10, your health care coverage would continue through June 30 of the following year.

You may be eligible for APC if you were pregnant in the last 12 months and were not on Apple Health during the pregnancy. After you are enrolled in APC, changes to your income will not affect your APC coverage regardless of how your pregnancy ends.

Note: If you are on Apple Health coverage, report your pregnancy with an estimated due date to receive APC for up to 12 months after your pregnancy ends. We cannot guarantee a smooth transition into the APC program without this information. Learn how to report a change.

Confidential services

If you are 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.
