On 4/12/21, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced actions to expand access to continuous maternal health coverage for Medicaid-eligible women in Illinois.  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved expanding coverage from the current 60-day pospartum period.  It is projected that around 2,500 women in Illinois with incomes up to 208% of the federal poverty level (FPL) will receive 12 months of continous Medicaid coverage due to the extension of these benefits.  More information can be found in the HHS press release.
