Medi-Cal Access Program (MCAP) offers low-cost health coverage for mid-income pregnant women. It has been designed for middle income families without health insurance and whose income is too high for no-cost Medi-Cal. MCAP is also available to those who have health insurance if their deductible or co-payment for maternity services is more than $500. If you qualify for MCAP, your baby is automatically eligible for enrollment in the MCAP Infant Program unless your infant is enrolled in employer-sponsored insurance or no-cost Medi-Cal. Please contact the toll free number for more information or visit the website to complete the infant registration form.
