Evers’ Budget Includes Money for Maternal Health

Gov. Tony Evers’ state budget would make significant investments in maternal and child health in Wisconsin, if passed as proposed. The proposed budget calls for an extension of Medicaid coverage during the postpartum period, from 60 days to 12 months. Evers is also proposing Medicaid coverage of doula services. This is the second time Evers will push for extending Medicaid coverage for postpartum individuals and investing in doulas. He made similar requests in 2019, but state legislators didn’t include the recommendations in the final budget.
