Medicaid Funding Opportunities in Support of Perinatal Regionalization Systems
Nearly 40 states have a system of risk appropriate perinatal care. A series of new resources explore Medicaid’s role as an important partner in developing perinatal regionalization policies and strategies given its significant investments in a disproportionate share of high-risk births and flexibility in the range and scope of services covered. Case studies of California and Georgia demonstrate how state Medicaid agencies have developed various approaches to support risk appropriate perinatal care. NASHP in partnership with the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ), developed these resources as part of the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network to Reduce Infant Mortality (IM CoIIN).
