Long-acting Reversible Contraception

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) is a highly effective contraceptive option with high rates of patient satisfaction and method continuation.

For more information on implementing the Texas Medicaid policy on providing LARC services, see the Texas LARC Toolkit (PDF).

Postpartum Depression

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 Texas Clinician’s Postpartum Depression Toolkit (PDF) is a resource for Texas clinicians about screening, diagnosis and treatment of PPD. The toolkit includes coverage and reimbursement options for PPD through Medicaid, CHIP, the Healthy Texas Women program, the Family Planning Program and other referral options.
