(This amendment restores $1.1 million the first year and $2.1 million the second year from the general fund to extend postpartum coverage for women in the FAMIS program from two months to 12 months. Women with income from 143 to 205 percent of the federal poverty level are currently eligible for coverage in the FAMIS program during pregnancy through 60 days postpartum. FAMIS is funded through the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program with a 35 percent state match.)
