Maternal and Infant Support
Among the goals of the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) are to reduce and eliminate racial disparities in maternal and infant outcomes and to reduce infant mortality. To that end, ODM is implementing a Maternal and Infant Support Program focused on providing services and strategies designed to advance these goals. Today, Ohio ranks near the bottom of the nation for its rate of infant mortality. Our state also faces significant racial disparities in neonatal outcomes, as supported by the most recent Ohio Department of Health statistics on maternal health and infant births. ODM values health equity and is determined to address and eliminate health disparities. To successfully work toward this goal, ODM is committed to ensuring high-quality, person-centered care is delivered to our moms and babies to improve outcomes and reduce disparities.
