Will Nevada Medicaid Pay for Prenatal Care?
Yes! Medicaid in the state of Nevada covers prenatal care including coverage for the following:
- A doctor or certified nurse-midwife visits for prenatal care and testing.
- Specialist care for complications.
- Delivery services in a hospital or birthing center
- After-delivery care.
- Treatment for preterm labor.
No — abortion procedures are not covered under Nevada Medicaid, with exceptions to cases of rape and incest.
However, for women who experience complications related to their abortions, Nevada Medicaid does cover the treatment of incomplete, missed, or septic abortions, when medically necessary.
