2022 Idaho Medicaid FAQ’s

Share This Post

Idaho Medicaid makes it possible for children and adults with low incomes to get and stay healthy. It provides essential and comprehensive healthcare for expectant mothers, helps people with disabilities live independent lives, supports our seniors, and ensures children receive regular check-ups. Many Idahoans with low incomes work in jobs that do not offer health coverage.

Medicaid allows individuals to see a doctor when they are sick, receive preventive care, purchase medications, and go to the hospital. Medicaid reduces state and county uncompensated care costs, saves tax payer dollars, and improves access to care in rural areas. Families with Medicaid do not have to choose between going to the doctor, buying groceries, or paying the rent.

Idaho Maternal and Infant Healthcare Report 2023

Idaho Kids Covered originally published our Idaho Maternal and Infant Health Report in the fall of 2022.
One year later, maternal and infant health needs in Idaho have only grown. Yet, when we look at state trends, almost every single health data metric included in our last report has continued in the wrong direction.

More pregnant women, new moms, and babies in our state are dying—but most of these deaths are preventable. Idaho policymakers have the opportunity to consider what the data shows about the needs of families and act now to advance a set of broad state priorities that will improve birth outcomes, the health of infants, and the well-being of moms. Idaho moms and babies simply cannot afford another year of inaction.
