Medi-Cal Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women

The Presumptive Eligibility (PE) for Pregnant Women is a Medi-Cal program designed to provide immediate, temporary coverage for ambulatory prenatal care and prescription drugs for conditions related to pregnancy to low-income pregnant women pending a formal Medi-Cal application. This program is designed for low-income California residents who believe they are pregnant and who do not have health insurance or Medi-Cal coverage for prenatal care.
