What is Baby Your Baby (BYB)?
Baby Your Baby (BYB) is temporary medical coverage (Medicaid) for pregnant women who qualify. BYB covers pregnancy-related outpatient services provided by any Utah Medicaid Provider. It does not cover the delivery of the baby. Your application will also serve as an ongoing medical application. If you are eligible for ongoing medical, you will be covered for the rest of your pregnancy along with the hospital stay and delivery charges. Your baby will also be covered under medical for one year. However, applying for ongoing medical benefits is not a requirement for BYB. If you choose not to apply for ongoing benefits, you can mark the "opt-out" question on the application.

Do I need to list everyone that lives in my household?
You must add everyone that lives in your household.
Can I request medical coverage for someone else in my household?
Yes. Since the BYB application also serves as an ongoing medical application, you can request medical coverage for any person living in your household.
What if I am pregnant minor (under the age of 18)?
If you are a pregnant minor, your parent, legal guardian, or representative must complete and sign the application on your behalf. If you are living independently, you may apply on your own behalf.
I am not a US citizen. Can I still apply for BYB?
In order to qualify for BYB, you must be a US citizen, US National, or an eligible-non citizen. An eligible non-citizen is an individual who is lawfully admitted for permanent residence under various sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
How do I find out if I am eligible for BYB?
You must select a BYB representative to process your application. The BYB representative you choose does not have to be your health care provider. After you select a BYB provider and submit your application, you need to call the BYB representative to make an appointment. The representative will go over your application and determine if you qualify for BYB.
How much income can I make to qualify for BYB?
The income limits for BYB are based on your household size. These limits change every year. Your BYB representative will determine if you meet the income limit for your household size. For a household size of four, the approximate income limit is $2,850 per month.
What amount do I put for income if I make commissions or my income changes every month?
You can average out your income over the past three months. For example, add up your income for the past 3 months and divide it by 3. You can use this number as your income.
I do not have internet access. How do I apply for BYB?
You can also apply for BYB in person or over the phone. To apply by phone or for a list of addresses and contact information for places across Utah where you can apply in person, call 1-800-826-9662.
I just moved here from another state. Can I still apply for BYB?
Yes. You can apply for BYB as long as you are currently a Utah resident.
I need to add or change information on the application that I have already submitted.
Once you submit your application, you cannot change any information. Inform your BYB representative of the changes.
How long does it take to find out if I qualify for BYB?
Your BYB representative will make a decision within 30 days from the date you submit your application. If you qualify, your BYB coverage begins the date your BYB representative determines you are eligible.
If you still need help, please call your BYB representative.
