Pregnancy is an exciting time – as an expectant mom, you have lots to do to get ready for the arrival of your baby! Louisiana Healthcare Connections is here to help you have a healthy pregnancy with special benefits and services for you and your baby.
In addition to full pregnancy healthcare coverage and unlimited visits to your OB/GYN, pregnant members enjoy the following special benefits:
Start Smart For Your Baby
As a Louisiana Healthcare Connections member, you can enroll in our Start Smart For Your Baby program. This program is free to pregnant members and new moms. You’ll get tips on how to have a healthy pregnancy and reminders for prenatal and postpartum care in the mail and by phone.
Rewards For Completing Prenatal and Postpartum Visits
Louisiana Healthcare Connections members get rewards for completing certain doctor visits and screenings. These cash rewards are added to a CentAccount, or OTC, card, and can be spent on items like diapers and baby supplies at stores like Walmart, Rite Aid, Dollar General and Family Dollar. For pregnant and new moms, the rewards include the following:
- Pregnant moms earn $10 for each prenatal visit, up to 11 visits. That’s $110 just for getting regular prenatal care!
- Pregnant moms receive $30 for completing a Notification of Pregnancy form to let us know they’re expecting.
- New moms earn $50 for following up with their OB/GYN within 8 weeks of giving birth.
Your baby can also earn rewards! For completing well-child visits at 2, 4, 6, 9, 12 and 15 months, your little one receives $30! You can learn more about our Member Rewards Program here.
