Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnant Women

Presumptive Eligibility (PE) offers temporary coverage of prenatal care services to pregnant women while their Medicaid applications are pending. The goal of the PE program is to offer healthcare to women early in their pregnancies, so they stay healthy and have healthy babies. Presumptive Eligibility means that we presume you are eligible for the Hoosier Healthwise program based on some preliminary information that you provide.

Eligibility Criteria

  • PE is for pregnant women who are not currently receiving Medicaid
  • PE is for pregnant women who do not have health insurance.
  • Your family income must be at or below 200% FPL.  
  • PE is only for Indiana residents.
  • You can only apply for PE once for each pregnancy.
  • If you need help, contact the Helpline at 1-800-889-9949 or email
