HB 4 – Medicaid twelve month postpartum coverage.

We Support This Bill.

Summary: AN ACT relating to medical assistance and services; temporarily extending Medicaid medical assistance to qualifying pregnant women for twelve (12) months postpartum; making a conforming amendment; providing an appropriation; requiring rulemaking; and providing for effective dates.
Why It Matters: Extending postpartum Medicaid is crucial for the health and wealth of moms and babies in Wyoming. Currently, after 60 days, a majority of women are disenrolled from the Medicaid Pregnant Women Program. This bill proposes a benefit extension, so women can receive continuous care from the time the baby is born to 12 months postpartum. Healing and receiving the necessary care is a long and important process so that women can avoid financial and health-related stress, return to work, and attain economic self-sufficiency.
