2301 Postpartum Period for Pregnant Women - Eligibility for pregnant women shall continue through the 2nd calendar month following the month of birth of the child or termination of pregnancy provided the woman is or will be a Medicaid recipient for the month of birth or pregnancy termination (including prior eligibility). This provision applies not only to pregnant women who were MP recipients in that month but also to pregnant women who were eligible under another FFP medical program and lost that eligibility in the month of birth or pregnancy termination due to a change in circumstances (e.g., loss of cash eligibility). All general eligibility factors must continue to be met during the postpartum period.
