Supporting Healthy Babies: Benefits For Pregnant Women
With special benefits and services, Louisiana Healthcare Connections is here to help our expectant moms have a healthy pregnancy.
In addition to full pregnancy healthcare coverage and unlimited OB/GYN visits, 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. To help babies get a healthy start, our members receive a crib / playpen and safe sleep kit before their due date. Plus, they get free access to the Start Smart Louisiana mobile app and more. This program is free to pregnant members and new moms, providing tips on how to have a healthy pregnancy and sending reminders for prenatal and postpartum care.
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 My Health Pays card. Your rewards are your dollars to spend to help pay for utilities, transportation, telecommunications (cell phone bill) childcare services, education costs and rent. And only you know the best way to spend them. My Health Pays rewards can also be used to buy home goods, personal care items, clothing, food and more at participating stores.
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 total 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 12 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! Learn more about our Member Rewards Program.
