Pregnancy Counseling – Medical Expenses

COMMUNITY RESOURCES

INSURANCE AND MEDICAID
Private insurance and Medicaid will be utilized to meet all medical costs if possible. Expectant mothers will be asked to apply for all such benefits, if qualified. Your caseworker will help you decide which option is best for you. If you decide to parent, you will be responsible for the medical expenses that are not covered by either insurance or Medicaid.

WHAT'S COVERED
If the baby is relinquished to La Familia-Namaste for an adoptive placement, agency resources may be utilized to pay for any pregnancy, delivery, and routine post-natal care for you and the child. Your wishes for healthcare services will be acknowledged and respected.

We encourage you to obtain prenatal care as soon, and as consistently as possible. La Familia-Namaste will keep you informed of any medical resources that meet your needs. If necessary, La Familia-Namaste will help birthparents find resources to assist with pregnancy related expenses.
