In addition to being uninsured, the woman cannot have access to employer-sponsored health insurance (either through her employer or her spouse’s) that provides pre-natal care/maternity benefits. Having insurance or accessibility to insurance that includes pre-natal care/maternity benefits can be verified through self-attestation.
FSD staff processing the application must use the Affordability Calculator to determine if affordable insurance is available to this family. DO NOT require the family to provide insurance quotes unless they disagree with the Calculator determination. If the family disagrees, they made give quotes verbally or in writing at an FSD office or through the FSD Information center at 855-FSD-INFO (855-373-4636).
