Apple Health Take-Charge (Family Planning)
Revised July 25, 2014
Purpose: To explain the Take Charge program.
Individuals must apply for the program through a Take Charge family planning provider. Family planning providers send completed applications for Take Charge to MEDS at HCA. All eligibility and service questions posed by Take Charge individuals should be referred to the Take Charge provider where they enrolled.
Example: Mary Sue is covered under Apple Health for Pregnant Women. She has her baby and reports this in Healthplanfinder. After she has her baby, she does not qualify for other Apple Health programs because her income is too high. She is potentially eligible for the Apple Health Take Charge program.
The Take Charge medical coverage type in ACES is P06. Participation in the Take Charge program is confidential even when members of the same household are receiving Take Charge.
Example: Members of the same family or household may not know that a spouse or minor is receiving Take Charge. Staff must not reveal who in the household is receiving Take Charge.
For a list of providers, visit HCA’s Family Planning web site.
Take Charge individuals who inquire about their Family Planning coverage should be informed to contact their Take Charge provider.
Workers may contact the Take Charge Unit at 1-800-562-3022.
Note: Staff do not need to take any action to close AUs for Apple Health for Pregnant Women. ACES will automatically terminate these AUs when individuals become active in another medical program or when the certification period ends.
