(This amendment provides funding to increase the income eligibility limit for the FAMIS Moms program from 150 to 175 percent of the federal poverty level. This allows the mothers of FAMIS-eligible newborns to access prenatal care which may improve birth outcomes and reduce perinatal costs. The amendment also includes language that clarifies that the FAMIS Moms program may provide coverage to lower income pregnant women who do not qualify for Medicaid for non-financial reasons.)
