MOM Care Program: Mobile's Medicaid Maternity Program

If you are covered by Medicaid and are currently pregnant, we encourage you to enroll into the MOM Care program.

MOM Care is a network of physicians, clinics and hospitals in Mobile County dedicated to ensuring that all expectant mothers and their babies have access to quality care. The goal of MOM Care is delivering healthy babies.

You must sign up with MOM Care in order for Medicaid to pay for your prenatal care and delivery. To sign up, contact a MOM care program care coordinator to schedule an appointment.

There are many MOM Care enrollment sites located throughout Mobile County. You can enroll at the MOM Care office located at 1714 Center St. or call the office at (251) 415-8585 to find an enrollment site nearest to you.
