REQUESTING THE DIVISION OF MEDICAID AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE STUDY THE EXTENSION OF MEDICAID COVERAGE THROUGH THE FIRST YEAR POSTPARTUM.
This Senate Concurrent Resolution requests that the Division of Medicaid and Medical Assistance study the extension of Medicaid coverage through the first year postpartum. Insurance coverage is a critical factor in determining women's access to affordable postpartum care and is a key strategy for reducing preventable maternal mortality and to close the disparity in the maternal mortaility rate among black women and women of other races.
