Access & Coverage
  • The Biden administration approved three more states’ plans to extend postpartum Medicaid coverage to women up to one year after pregnancy. Kansas, Connecticut, and Massachusetts join 15 other states and the District of Columbia in extending coverage for people enrolled in Medicaid from 60 days to one year after a pregnancy. Health officials project that the expanded programs will offer improved postpartum coverage to roughly 19,000 people. (Press release here)
