2020 Legislative Agenda Survey

Our 2020 legislative agenda is the result of hard work by scores of West Virginians.  Let us know what you think about the policies we are advocating.  Are they more important to you or less important?  Anything we miss?  Let us know. 

 

Expand Medicaid coverage to one year after childbirth for women up to 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.
In 2018, the WV Legislature made huge strides for women and families by passing SB564, expanding coverage for pregnant women at higher income levels for 60 days postpartum. However, postpartum conditions can continue long after the first 60 days, and continued Medicaid coverage is vital for parents who have substance use disorders. Expanding coverage to one year postpartum is estimated to cost less than $1 million per year in state dollars.
