Coalition letter supporting HB 12 which would extend Medicaid postpartum coverage to 12 months
HB 12 would allow mothers to keep Medicaid insurance for one year after pregnancy instead of just
two months. Options are limited for low-income, uninsured moms. This bill allows new moms to access
needed medications, get consistent health care, and continue seeing their doctor, specialist, or other
professional without disruption. HB 12 would offer comprehensive care for new moms, leverage Texas’
existing provider network, and allow the state to draw down federal funds.
