(This amendment provides additional funding to expand the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security Plan to pregnant women who are over the age of 19 with annual family income in excess of the Medicaid limit but less than or equal to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The introduced budget proposed expanding the eligibility for pregnant women with income up to 175 percent of the federal poverty level. This expansion would help to preserve the availability of existing obstetrical services and avoid future medical costs by improving access to prenatal care.)
