As part of a provision to the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), New Mexico has joined other states across the country in efforts to expand Medicaid coverage for postpartum care from two months to 12 months. This expansion will improve maternal health and helps address racial disparities in the healthcare system.

This expansion has the potential to impact thousands of New Mexicans.
