Medicaid Financing of Early Childhood Home Visiting Programs: Options, Opportunities, and Challenges

The purchasing power of Medicaid can be a significant policy lever for promoting early childhood home visiting program quality and improving maternal and child health outcomes. With support from the Pew Home Visiting Campaign, NASHP conducted a literature review and environmental scan of state policies and practices, and facilitated a national expert panel to identify mechanisms for supporting home visiting services through Medicaid. This report explores the variety of Medicaid financing mechanisms states are currently using to support home visiting services, other potential financing mechanisms that could be used, and considerations for states exploring each of these financing mechanisms.
