Key Features of Build Back Better

Kinika Young | December 2021

Our final vlog update for 2021 includes important information about the Build Back Better Act that was passed in the House in November. Included in the act is 12-month postpartum health coverage for new parents once their pregnancy ends. TN has already included extended postpartum coverage in the state budget and it’s scheduled to start in April 2022. You can go here to get the latest info.

Now, it’s the Senate’s turn. Let your TN Senators know that you support Build Back Better.

And be sure to thank TN Representatives Rep. Cooper and Rep. Cohen for their support!
