PCC Sends Letter of Support for H.R. 3345, The Helping MOMS Act

Approximately 700 women die annually in the United States because of pregnancy or its complications and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 60 percent of pregnancy related deaths are considered preventable. Building on PCC’s advocacy to ensure health across the lifespan, PCC has offered a letter of support for the Helping MOMS Act of 2021 (H.R. 3345), which would permanently extend 12-months of continuous Medicaid coverage postpartum and temporarily increase the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (i.e., federal matching rate) for pregnancy-related services in states that choose to do so.
