Getting proof of your pregnancy is necessary to obtain Medicaid assistance. While you may have discovered your pregnancy through a home pregnancy test, this is not sufficient proof for the Medicaid office. If you cannot afford a pregnancy test at your doctor's office, there is another solution.
Locate your local pregnancy crisis center. You can normally find these listed under abortion alternatives in your community Yellow Pages.
Call the crisis center nearest you to inquire about an appointment or walk-in hours.
Request a pregnancy test after speaking with one of the crisis center counselors. This pregnancy test operates in the same way as a home pregnancy test.
Read the results with the counselor. If the results are positive, request a proof of pregnancy form for Medicaid from the counselor.
