Evaluating Availability of Maternal Health Care Providers in Medicaid Managed Care
Pregnant people in the United States experience worse pregnancy outcomes than people in any other high-income country, and significant racial and geographic disparities exist. Maternal health care can improve pregnancy outcomes; however, many pregnant people in the United States lack access to maternal health care. Medicaid is the Nation's largest maternal health care payor, financing more than 40 percent of all U.S. births, and many pregnant people enrolled in Medicaid are enrolled in managed care plans. This study will use encounter data to evaluate the availability of maternal health care providers to people enrolled in Medicaid managed care.
