If any benefit that you receive falls under the category of a means tested benefit (or whatever the term is), USCIS can ask your sponsor to pay back to the government the money charged for that benefit. Please consult other well informed people in this forum for to confirm what I have mentioned as I may be wrong.

Medicare and Medicaid are completely different. I doubt if the Human Services will even let you apply for Medicaid. You can get WIC tho.

WIC falls under the category of a means tested benefit

Many groups of people are covered by Medicaid. Even within these groups, though, certain requirements must be met. These may include your age, whether you are pregnant, disabled, blind, or aged; your income and resources (like bank accounts, real property, or other items that can be sold for cash); and whether you are a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant. The rules for counting your income and resources vary from state to state and from group to group. There are special rules for those who live in nursing homes and for disabled children living at home.

Your child may be eligible for coverage if he or she is a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant, even if you are not (however, there is a 5-year limit that applies to lawful permanent residents). Eligibility for children is based on the child's status, not the parent's. Also, if someone else's child lives with you, the child may be eligible even if you are not because your income and resources will not count for the child.

In general, you should apply for Medicaid if you have limited income and resources. You must match one of the descriptions below. (Even if you are not sure whether you qualify, if you or someone in your family needs health care, you should apply for Medicaid and have a qualified caseworker in your state evaluate your situation.)

Pregnant Women

Apply for Medicaid if you think you are pregnant. You may be eligible if you are married or single. If you are on Medicaid when your child is born, both you and your child will be covered.

I have known many women in the military (spouses) who are green card holders who use WIC - I myself have been told that I would be eligable for it if I were to get pregnant. I don't see why it would be any different for non-military.

"Can noncitizens get WIC?

Yes, noncitizens can get WIC. All noncitizens, including undocumented noncitizens, who meet the eligibility requirements can get WIC benefits.

No one from WIC will ask about your immigration status. Getting WIC benefits will not make you a public charge and will not hurt your chances of becoming a legal permanent resident."

I would see if there is a state funded health care insurance through you state that you pay based on your salary. I know there is different insurance out there like that, but you need to find out what your state calls it. In any event I pray that you have a healthy and happy baby, and that your health will be fine.

You can use WIC with no problems (it's means tested but NOT goverment funded). You can also use private not for profit services for your medical care. You can also apply for emerngcy medicare when it comes time to give birth. You apply for that like the day of or day after birth. You are allowed to apply for that but nothing else. This will save you $20,000+....the cost of the birth and hospital visit and all related cost for your hospital visit. My wife ended up being in the ICU after giving birth and our grand total was over 50k....all paid for by emegency medicare. Your able to get medicare for your child also as the AOS doesnt apply.

There was a link I read on USCIS website in the past which stated what did and did not count as benefits that are not allowed to PR's but it said something about benefits that are for cash or cash like benefits are not allowed but ones that assist such as WIC are allowed - it had a list of them, I will see if I can find it.

I found the link:

• Aliens who are LPRs (who already have a "green card") –

o LPRs cannot lose their status (have their "green card" revoked) if they, their children, or other family members use:

HEALTH CARE, FOOD PROGRAMS, or other NON-CASH PROGRAMS

CASH WELFARE (* see note below for exception)

LONG-TERM CARE (* see note below for exception)

here is the link from uscis website:
