Medicaid for Pregnant Women

You may apply for any of the programs in this handout using the single streamline Medicaid application. Children may be living in one or two parent families. You may also apply for unrelated children as long as they are living in your home, and you provide parental care and support. For fast service, you may apply on-line at www.insurealabama.org. You may also mail your application. For a paper application, call 1-800-362-1504 or visit Medicaid’s website at www.medicaid.alabama.gov. If you cannot apply online or by mail, you can apply in person at your local county health department, federally qualified health care center or some local hospitals.
