The 2024 WIAAP Advocacy Day will be held on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 in Madison at the Best Western Premier Park Hotel, 22 South Carroll Street Madison, WI 53703

This year’s WIAAP Pediatric Advocacy Day’s focus is to push for a hearing for AB 114, a bipartisan supported bill that would extend postpartum Medicaid benefits from the current 60 days to a full 12 months.

Providing a full year of postpartum Medicaid coverage means … saving lives, improving infant health outcomes, reducing health care costs, and investing in the future of our state.
