Babies First

Visiting the doctor for regular check-ups is one of the building blocks of good health for you and your baby. The CareSource Babies First program rewards you for building your good health. With Babies First, you can earn up to $150 on a gift card. All you have to do is this:

A – See your OB/GYN doctor regularly while you are pregnant

B – See your OB/GYN doctor for a follow-up visit after the baby is born

C – Make sure your child sees the doctor for Healthchek exams. Children should have exams at birth, 3-5 days of age and at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24, and 30 months. These exams are a part of the Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis Treatment (EPSDT) Program. 

Keep your scheduled medical appointments for you and your baby and you can receive a MyCareSource Rewards™ card. Follow the steps below and earn up to $150 on your MyCareSource Rewards card. This card works at many local stores. This card gives you a reward for prenatal visits and your baby’s Healthcheks through the age of 15 months.
