Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women

The Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women (PE4PW) program allows Qualified Providers to grant immediate, temporary Medi-Cal coverage for ambulatory prenatal care and prescription drugs for conditions related to pregnancy to low-income, pregnant patients, pending their formal Medi-Cal application. PE4PW is designed for California residents who believe they are pregnant and who do not have Medi-Cal coverage for prenatal care.

The documents on this page include additional information about the program. Providers are encouraged to check this page periodically for the latest program information.
