Covered California has fixed an enrollment gap for middle-income uninsured pregnant women, allowing them to receive affordable benefits through the exchange.
California’s insurance exchange added the Medi-Cal Access Program to its streamlined application process this week. MCAP (formerly known as Access for Infants and Mothers) is a longstanding program that covers pregnant women with annual incomes over the 213% federal poverty level income limit for Medi-Cal and up to 322% of federal poverty level ($51,312). The federal government covers 89% of the cost of the MPAC program.
