Medicaid for International Students?

Hi all,

I come one year ago in USA in order to start my PhD in ME. My term is starting this August but I recently found out that I am 2 months pregnant, which is the best thing ever for me. I have visited 20 hospitals in Northern Virginia and nobody want to accept me. Furthermore, they tell me I am not qualified for Medicaid and my student health insurance, which will start on August 20, consider my condition pre-existing. So far I have been visiting private clinics but they are really expensive. Does anybody have some experience or suggestion...I would appreciate.

  It appears you would likely not be eligible for Medicaid:

As regards your student health insurance it would depend on the specifics of their eligibility criteria. Find out if you could appeal the denial of coverage.
