What is MomCare?

MomCare is a program that provides assistance to help you have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. It is sponsored by the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA).

How will it help you?

  • When you find out that you are pregnant, you may have these questions:
  • What do I do?
  • Where do I go?
  • How do I get help?
  • Who do I talk to if I have a problem?

How does it work?

MomCare helps you get answers to your questions. A caring Maternity Care Advisor (MCA) will be assigned to you. Your MCA will assist you in getting prenatal care and other pregnancy-related services; such as WIC, childbirth education, parenting education, breastfeeding education and more.  

How will your Maternity Care Advisor (MCA) help you?

  • Explain MomCare
  • Help you contact a Choice Counselor for enrollment with a Medicaid Managed Care Plan
  • Help you find a doctor or midwife
  • Tell you about the Healthy Start Program
  • Help you get into the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Program
  • Call to see how you are doing
  • Help you find a doctor for your baby
  • Help if you have special needs
