Description: MCAP provides pregnant women with comprehensive coverage for a low cost with no copayments or deductibles for its covered services. Their newborns may be covered by the Medi-Cal Access Infant Program. MCAP is for middle-income families who do not have health insurance and whose income is too high for no-cost Medi-Cal. MCAP is also available to women who have other health insurance plans that doesn't cover maternity services or with a maternity-only deductible or copayment greater than $500.
Programs: Medi-Cal currently provides a core set of health benefits, including doctor visits, hospital care, immunization, pregnancy-related services and nursing home care, if medically necessary. For a majority of enrollees, Medi-Cal provides covered services through the managed care delivery system in all 58 counties, although services may be accessed on a fee-for-service basis.
