Join Us Virtually February 14

The 2023 state legislative session started earlier this month, and as we shared with you a few weeks ago we are working on important legislation designed to help protect the health of new moms. It would extend postpartum Medicaid coverage from 60 days to a full year.

We’d like to invite you to register for the February webinar that our coalition, Idaho Kids Covered, is hosting on February 14th at 12 pm MST. We will provide an update on what is happening in the legislature including the status of this important piece of legislation.

The Idaho Maternal and Infant Health Report shows a troubling trend in our state regarding maternal and infant mortality. Between 2019 and 2020, maternal mortality more than doubled, increasing by 104%. Sadly, the report also indicated that 100% of maternal deaths were preventable. 

With a large number of new legislators, new legislative leadership, and many important health policy issues on the docket, the 2023 legislative session has already been an eventful one.

We will be in touch when this bill starts to move with opportunities for you to reach out to your legislators in support but until then know that we are closely monitoring and working on the issue. Thank you and we hope you can join us on February 14.
