To be eligible a woman must be pregnant. The fact of pregnancy must be documented by medical diagnosis before the case can be approved for MC+ healthcare coverage. The present length of pregnancy must be determined so that the beginning date of MC+ healthcare coverage can be determined and a priority set for the expected due date. (See MC+ Healthcare Coverage). Accept a statement from the claimant’s physician. If needed, FSD can pay for a medical examination to determine pregnancy in the same manner as for an examination to determine incapacity for the Medical Assistance (MA) program. A written statement from a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse may be used to verify pregnancy. If incapacity must be established, obtain a physician’s statement.
