86. Reps. Crawley and Manning on Extending Health Care Coverage for New Mothers (with commentary from Children's Defense Fund–Ohio)

On this two part episode, Dan Skinner first talks with Rep. Erica Crawley (26th House District) and Rep. Gayle Manning (55th House District) about their advocacy for expanding Medicaid postpartum health care services for new mothers from the current 60 days to the federal maximum. Then, in Part II, Dan talks with Kelly Vyzral of Children’s Defense Fund of Ohio, who provides some reflections and expert commentary on Dan’s conversation with the legislators. Topics include the importance of the Medicaid postpartum coverage, proposals to increase access to doula care, bipartisanship in addressing policy challenges in maternal and infant health, and the efficiencies of health policy that emphasizes prevention.
