H.R.2602 REP. AYANNA PRESSLEY (D-MA)
Support the MOMMIES Act!
About half of all births in the U.S. are covered by Medicaid, but for many women, coverage does not always translate into adequate, comprehensive maternity care.
This bill aims to improve maternal health outcomes by enhancing the, quality, cost, and experience of maternity care. Among other provisions, this bill will extend Medicaid coverage to a year following childbirth; pilot maternity care homes, a model that provides coordinated, comprehensive, and culturally appropriate services and care; and assess and recommend strategies to expand Medicaid coverage of doula care.
