The Health Department offers:

  • Medical care during pregnancy and after the baby is born;

  • Referral to the Child Health Program;
  • Possible visits to your home;
  • Assistance in enrolling women eligible for HealthChoice, a program that provides free health insurance to pregnant women and children with moderate to low incomes;
  • Referrals to the Women, Infant and Children(WIC) Program and other health services; and,
  • Language interpretation for clients who speak Spanish and other languages.

Services are offered to all women in Prince George's County, based on a sliding fee scale according to their ability to pay. For additional information, please visit the Healthy Beginnings Program  or call 301-583-3311.
