This act will amend the American Rescue Plan to eliminate the time limite on the state option to extend postpartum Medicaid coverage, allowing states a permanent option to extend coverage. The act will also increase the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) rate by 5% for pregnancy-related services in the first year states adopt extended postpartum coverage.
