You have several choices for how you can pay for your prenatal care and your own health care.
- your parents’ health insurance up until you’re 26 years old, if you are already a covered dependent and their policy covers maternity care
- Medi‑Cal’s Minor Consent Program
- another Medi‑Cal program
- getting coverage from the adoptive parents, if the baby will be adopted
Even if your parents’ health insurance covers you, it probably won’t cover your baby. For more information, see Health Care for Baby and You and Adoption.
