Fees and Payments

Montgomery County and the participating hospitals help keep the costs for prenatal care as low as possible.  However, there is a $500 co-pay due to the hospital for the prenatal visits and services.  This co-pay is to be paid directly by the pregnant woman to the hospital providing her prenatal care and the future delivery of her baby.

You may complete an application at one of the Office of Eligibility & Support Services.  Locations are listed above.  Please bring all required documents to show you are eligible.

2. Are prenatal care services in the Maternity Partnership free once I have been accepted into the program?

No.  As a Maternity Partnership recipient you are required to pay an established co-payment to the hospital where you will receive her prenatal care.  The $500 co-payment is paid at the time of your first visit to the hospital-based prenatal clinic. 

3. Are laboratory tests provided?

Yes. The program covers free laboratory tests for routine lab work recommended during a pregnancy.
