Ill. bills target improving maternal health
Illinois lawmakers are considering a bill to provide Medicaid coverage for new mothers for 12 months after birth, and to create a pilot program for low-income women in their first pregnancy that would offer in-home visits by nurses. A second bill would mandate teaching nurses and physicians about implicit bias in continuing education programs.
