For families trying to make ends meet, FL moms and babies will get an extension for Medicaid health care [Florida Phoenix]

Isaac Morgan writes:

"For mothers and babies in Florida who rely on health care through Medicaid, the GOP-controlled Florida Legislature has made a promise: After a mother births a child, both mom and babies will have health coverage for a full year, up from two months currently.

Florida’s 2021-22 state budget includes nearly $240 million for the initiative, a state-federal Biden administration program for families with low incomes who need access to the Medicaid program.


'We are thrilled that the legislature is making this new investment in mothers and their babies,' Anne Swerlick, senior policy analyst at the Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added], said in an email to the Phoenix."
