Maryland Medicaid will start paying for some community violence prevention services, peer recovery support services in certain settings, and pregnancy and postpartum care for people whether or not they’re a U.S. citizen under benefits expansions announced earlier this week. “These new benefits will help improve the well-being of Maryland Medicaid participants and contribute to the overall health of Maryland communities,” Gov. Wes Moore said in a news release announcing the expansion.
