0925.020.10 Postpartum Coverage

Pregnant women who are approved for MC+ healthcare coverage continue to be eligible during the postpartum period. (Refer to Continuous Eligibility, Section 0925.025.00.) MC+ healthcare coverage as a pregnant woman terminates on the last day of the month containing the 60th day after the termination of the pregnancy for women who apply while pregnant. The woman is not required to apply for another program to receive postpartum.

Eligibility for only postpartum coverage is not provided by law. To be eligible for postpartum coverage, the woman must have made application for MC+ healthcare coverage while pregnant and have been eligible, even though approval of the application might be after the birth of the child.
