I don't have insurance, so I applied for state insurance as soon as I knew I was pregnant. After a lot of run-around with that for a while, I finally got presumptive eligibility and went to the midwife. I got an ultrasound at 7 weeks, 3 days showing a heartbeat, but I was still really worried because of having a past miscarriage. The midwife offered to see me again in 2 weeks instead of 4 to make sure everything was still okay. I thought that was really sweet of her and accepted.
Closer to the time I felt silly about going back so soon because everything was going fine, but I went anyway and saw the heartbeat again. The very next day I got a phone call saying I am not eligible for the state insurance I had applied for. I am just so thankful to God that I got an extra appointment the day before. It gives me so much peace of mind.
I am now applying for the other type of insurance my state offers and have been assured there should be no reason why I won't get it. But it will probably take a month to come through, so no more appointments for a little while.
I'm really hoping it works out, but I also have peace about it, knowing that God has worked out everything so far, and I trust He will continue to do so.
I'm FROM Canada, so I know what I'm missing out on! I wish I was back there, but then that would be a headache because the baby would be a Canadian citizen and we are US green card holders. I guess we'd have to have the baby immigrate too? I have no idea how that would work. It will just be easier to be here and have the baby born a dual citizen.
I'm in Tennessee. I applied for TennCare Medicaid and got denied because I haven't had my green card long enough. I had no idea there was a minimum. So now I'm applying for CoverKids which covers the next income bracket up from Medicaid. (My husband just got another part time job, so it bumped our income up into that bracket anyway). It's for children only, but pregnant women can also get coverage through it. I think it's administered by the state.
