The Institute for Medicaid Innovation today released a new report that provides an overview of maternal behavioral health; risk factors, outcomes, and implications of maternal behavioral health disorders; barriers to obtaining behavioral health services; and opportunities for community organizations and Medicaid managed care to address maternal behavioral health. The report also contains case studies on maternal behavioral health efforts that are being led or co-designed by Medicaid health plans and community-based organizations. In addition, the report highlights policy barriers that inhibit pregnant women enrolled in Medicaid from accessing behavioral health services in coordination with their prenatal care, and identifies research, clinical and policy opportunities for improvement.
