What services are covered?

APC provides complete major medical coverage which include services that a person receives during their pregnancy coverage.

For more information visit:  Program benefit packages and scope of services.

How do I apply?

Beginning June 2022, if you are already on an Apple Health (Medicaid) program and a pregnancy is reported, coverage for APC will begin the first day of the month following the date the pregnancy ends.

APC is automatic if the pregnancy is reported with the estimated or actual pregnancy end date. It continues up to 12 months regardless of a change in income or the number of household members living at home during enrollment.  

Individuals not enrolled on an Apple Health program during their pregnancy can still apply for APC if their last pregnancy ended within the past 12 months.

Report a change in pregnancy status 

Current Apple Health clients should continue to report changes in their pregnancy status (including estimated due date). Without this information we cannot guarantee an additional 12 months of APC, starting the month after your pregnancy ends.
