Healthy Texas Women Now Offers Postpartum Services

Beginning September 1st 2020, the Healthy Texas Women program offers enrolled women an enhanced postpartum services package called Healthy Texas Women Plus.

Who qualifies?

To qualify, Healthy Texas Women members must have been pregnant within the last 12 months. You cannot get Healthy Texas Women Plus more than 12 months after the enrollment date.

What services are offered?

Healthy Texas Women Plus services include:

Postpartum depression and other mental health conditions

  • Services include individual, family and group psychotherapy services and peer specialist services.

Cardiovascular and coronary conditions

  • Services include imaging studies; blood pressure monitoring; and anticoagulant, antiplatelet and antihypertensive medications.

Substance use disorders, including drug, alcohol and tobacco misuse

  • Services include screenings, brief interventions, treatment referrals, outpatient substance use counseling, smoking cessation services, medicationassisted treatment and peer specialist services.

This program pays only for the services listed above. If a health condition, such as cancer is found, you will be referred to a doctor or clinic that can treat you. If you are pregnant, you will be referred to a program such as Medicaid for pregnant women. You might have to pay for those extra services.
