Healthcare coverage for mothers and babies

Health insurance helps expecting mothers pay for prenatal and maternity care.  It also helps new parents pay for visits to the pediatrician and immunizations for their children.

If you don’t have healthcare insurance coverage, or if the coverage you have isn’t enough to afford medical care for you and your baby, the following agencies can help:

Medicaid — (702) 668‑4200
Nevada Medicaid provides health coverage to pregnant women and children living under the federal poverty level who meet all of the program’s eligibility requirements, including citizenship.  Medicaid covers hospital and doctor’s visits, prenatal care, emergency room visits, drugs, and other treatments for women and children.

Nevada Check Up — (877) 543‑7669
Nevada Check Up is a state health insurance program that provides comprehensive healthcare coverage to low-income Nevada children who are not covered by private insurance or Medicaid, and who meet other eligibility requirements.  Benefits include well-baby/well-child visits, prescription drugs, mental health benefits, immunizations, and dental and vision services.

Access to HealthCare Network — (702) 489‑3400
The mission of Access to Healthcare Network is to increase access to primary and specialty health care for the uninsured working poor in Nevada.  Uninsured Nevada residents who do not qualify for Medicaid, Nevada Check Up, or employer-sponsored insurance can apply to be members of the network, which offers access to healthcare services at greatly reduced rates.
