Eligibility for MPE is based solely on a medically verified pregnancy and gross monthly income. While MPE is only available to the pregnant woman, family income is taken into account when determining eligibility.
The signature of the approved MPE provider is sufficient verification of pregnancy. The approved MPE provider accepts the pregnant woman's statement about her monthly income. An approved MPE provider can determine MPE eligibility more than once for the same woman.
An expected delivery date is not required, but is desirable.
MPE coverage is for outpatient medical care only and cannot be backdated. MPE clients are centrally issued a Medical Card.
