    MOM Program

    As part of a suite of innovative maternal and child health services, the MOM program focuses on improving care for pregnant and postpartum Medicaid participants diagnosed with opioid use disorder (OUD). 
    • With over 21,000 individuals of childbearing age diagnosed with OUD in Maryland, substance use is a leading cause of maternal death and has a significant impact on the approximately 1,500 infants born to Medicaid beneficiaries with OUD in Maryland per year. 
    • Originally part of a federal demonstration funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, Maryland’s MOM program addresses fragmentation in care through the provision of enhanced case management services, led by Medicaid’s nine managed care organizations (MCOs).
    • MOM case management services aim to improve maternal and infant health outcomes by emphasizing the importance of health care utilization, such as prenatal and postpartum visits, as well behavioral health treatment.
    • Increased health services are complemented by person-centered care planning and goal-setting informed by screenings for depression, anxiety and social determinants of health. 
    • To support care coordination, MOM care plans are shared through CRISP, the statewide health information exchange, to providers who see MOM participants.
    • The MOM program is grounded in the principle of supporting participants through a healthy pregnancy. 

    MOM Communications Toolkit

    The program’s success requires Marylanders across all sectors to identify and refer potential participants, provide access to critical health care services and link participants with needed community resources.​​ See the MOM Communications Toolkit for more information.​
