News Briefs: More States Extend Medicaid Postpartum Coverage

HHS on Aug. 16 approved the extension of Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurnace Program (CHIP) coverage for 12 months after pregnancy in Hawaii, Maryland and Ohio. Combined with previously approved state extensions made possible under the American Rescue Plan Act, 21 states and the District of Columbia now offer a full year of postpartum Medicaid/CHIP coverage. Separately, CMS issued a notice of proposed rulemaking on Aug. 18 that aims to require mandatory, annual state reporting of three quality measure sets: the Core Set of Children’s Health Care Quality Measures for Medicaid and CHIP; the behavioral health measures on the Core Set of Adult Health Care Quality Measures for Medicaid; and the Core Sets of Health Home Quality Measures for Medicaid. The quality measures “will allow us not only to identify health disparities but also to implement interventions based on the very data that make those disparities clear,” said CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure.
