CLASP Comments on Illinois 1115 Continuity of Care and Administrative Simplification Waiver

CLASP submitted comments in support of the Illinois 1115 continuity of care and administrative simplification waiver demonstration, which would allow it to expand postpartum Medicaid coverage for 12 months after childbirth and allow continuous eligibility during this period. If approved, parents and babies would be more likely to access and experience continuity of care in the first year of life, increasing positive health outcomes for both.
