Bill Number Bill Summary and Intended Impact
SB 21-194 Extends postpartum coverage to 365 days for persons who qualified for medical assistance benefits while pregnant. This will allow the pregnant person to maintain access to services during the postpartum period beyond the current 60-day coverage period.
SB 21-009 Required family planning coverage for undocumented residents as a Medicaid benefit. The legislation aims to reduce the rates of unintended pregnancy among undocumented residents.
SB 21-025 Requires Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program) to provide family planning services to individuals up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), which could reduce unintended pregnancy for members in this expanded income group.
SB 21-016 Expands preventive services and redefines family planning related to services as eligible outside managed care organizations, likely reducing unintended pregnancies.
