Datapoint: CMS Expands Postpartum Medicaid Coverage

The Biden administration on April 1 unveiled a new Medicaid enhancement, allowing states to extend Medicaid and CHIP coverage to postpartum beneficiaries for an additional 12 months. The new plan could impact as many as 720,000 people, according to CMS. Louisiana is the first state to begin offering this form of coverage, estimated to impact about 14,000 people. The state currently serves 1,941,505 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 91.5% enrolled in a managed care plan. Nine other states are also working on implementing the program.
