Two years ago, the Legislature and the Governor directed the Texas Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Task Force to make recommendations to improve maternal health. #txlege
When the #txlege Task Force concluded its investigation and released its report last year, their first recommendation was: Increase access to health services during the year after pregnancy and throughout the interconception period to improve the health of women, facilitate continuity of care, enable effective care transitions, and promote safe birth spacing....The Task Force recommends extending access to healthcare coverage for 12 months following delivery to ensure that medical and behavioral health conditions can be managed and treat
HB 744 would implement that recommendation. More information can be found here. BUT... #txlege txchildren.org/posts/2019/4/9…
HB 744 is up for 3rd reading in the House today. It’s the deadline for passing bills on 3rd reading, so if time runs out it’s GAME OVER.

🚨 Contact House members ASAP to vote in favor on 3rd reading. #txlege 🚨
ALSO: The Children’s Health Care Bill (*HB 342*), which will eliminate multiple periodic income checks and keep as many as 4000 kids from losing Medicaid coverage each month, is stalled. It hasn’t gotten out of Calendars, and there’s no opportunity for a House vote. #txlege
Action has moved to trying to find an amendment opportunity, and to pressure a hearing in Senate Health and Human Services. Call the committee office - 512-463-0360 - and ask for a hearing. It’s SB 637.#txlege
