Well I guess I comained to soon. As soon as I posted about my waiting time, she called me back and I was out of there withing 30 mins. So I was there for a total of 2 hrs and I did get the presumptive coverage. My SO is calling his insurance company today to see if he can add me and how much it will cost. He absolutely hates the idea of us using government assistance. ( so do I though) hopefully this will just be a temporary situation but at least I can get to the doctor in the mean time.

At least you have the temporary coverage. No one likes to be on gov assistance if they don't have to but if you have no choice then you gotta do what you gotta do. I'd still go ahead and apply for the full pregnancy one too. Even if you do get on your husband's insurance, if your income is low enough they might cover anything that his insurance doesn't cover. Either way better safe than sorry with prenatal care. Good luck!

Shoot as far as pregnancy goes I prefer government coverage. Having a baby is so expensive. for the first 5 months I had blue cross from my husband and government as secondary when he changed jobs blue cross was gone within 2 weeks. it was ridiculous. He had a $3500 flexible spending to cover what we had to pay out of pocket and it was finished within about 3 months. It was insane.
