have you tried applying for medical assistance? since you are pregnant you should qualify no matter what state you are in. it will also cover your baby once he or she comes into the world. if you go into the er for a checkup then have a social worker from the hospital help you fill out the paperwork. that is what they are there for so don't hesitate to utilize their knowledge
