PM 06-09-05-a: Postpartum Coverage

WAG 06-09-05-a.

Eligible pregnant women continue to receive coverage for the period of postpartum care. The period starts the day after the pregnancy ends and ends the last day of the calendar month in which the 60-day postpartum period ends. Pregnancy ends with the birth of a child, miscarriage, or abortion. Approve a separate case for an adopted or deceased child. Disregard income changes for any reason from the start of coverage through the end of the 60-day postpartum period. The 60-day postpartum period also applies to an eligible woman who is not pregnant at application, but whose pregnancy ended:

  • in the month of application or
  • in one of the 3 months before the month of application.
