Update on the 2024 Idaho Legislative Session
It’s been an exciting month of negotiations and strategizing as we move quickly toward the end of the Legislative Session. One of our priority issues, postpartum Medicaid expansion, was getting sidetracked in the challenging conversations around Medicaid cost containment. But, despite these challenges, we’ve managed to get a postpartum bill introduced! House Bill 633 will allow women to keep the health care coverage they receive under Medicaid for a full 12 months after delivery, rather than just the 60 days the current program covers. This will allow new moms who face health challenges after the birth of a new baby to focus on themselves and their baby instead of worrying about losing healthcare coverage.
