As of 2015, the Healthy Families program, which was only for children, is no longer in place in California, and the Medi-Cal program has taken its place, notes Contra Costa Health Services. Medi-Cal, however, does cover pregnant woman who are low-income in California.
Healthy Families covered children's vision, medical and dental care when their parents met income requirements. As of 2015, Medi-Cal helps provide medical benefits to pregnant women and low-income women with children. Recipients can receive prenatal care, medication, preventative services, children's services and coverage for hospitalization, mentions Covered CA. Medi-Cal also covers the disabled, elderly and those receiving benefits, such as CalFresh or refugee assistance, in California.
