Medicaid/CHIP—New Postpartum Depression Toolkit for Texas Clinicians

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Postpartum Depression (PPD) is a common, potentially serious, and sometimes life-threatening condition. Although the term PPD is commonly used, it is important to note that depression can occur during pregnancy as well as after the baby is born. 
 
The new Texas Clinician’s Postpartum Depression Toolkit is intended to be a resource for Texas clinicians on screening, diagnosis and treatment of PPD. The toolkit also includes coverage and reimbursement options for PPD through Medicaid, CHIP, the Healthy Texas Women Program, the Family Planning Program, and other referral options.
