Medicaid Coverage for Women and Children

The Kaiser Family Foundation has released an interactive fact sheet on how women use Medicaid. Roughly two-thirds (67%) of the 25 million adult women on Medicaid are in their reproductive years (19 to 49). Medicaid pays for nearly half of all births in the United States.  Moreover, Medicaid covers a wide range of reproductive health care services, including family planning, STI testing and treatment, and pregnancy-related care including prenatal services, childbirth, and postpartum care.
