CMS’s RFI on Maternal Health in Rural Areas

The AHA appreciates the opportunity to provide input on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Request for Information regarding maternal and infant health care in rural communities. The RFI solicits comments on the barriers and opportunities to improving maternal care access, quality and outcomes in rural communities; initiatives in the field that have shown positive impact on addressing barriers or maximizing opportunities; and ways that the Department of Health and Human Services and CMS can support such efforts.
