« Presumptive eligibility » permits pregnant prospective Medicaid enrollees to obtain services during the application period.
The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of presumptive eligibility on the receipt of prenatal care and the occurrence of low-birthweight births and neonatal, perinatal, and infant mortality.
Outcome rates for pregnant women who enrolled in Tennessee Medicaid in the 6-month period before presumptive eligibility was enacted were compared with those obtained for pregant women who enrolled in the 6-month period after presumptive eligibility had been in effect for 5 months.
