Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Model

The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has awarded New Hampshire as one of ten states to receive federal Medicaid funding under the Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Model. The MOM Model addresses fragmentation in the care of pregnant and postpartum Medicaid beneficiaries with opioid use disorder (OUD) in the Greater Manchester area through state-driven transformation of the health care delivery system that serves this vulnerable population.

The MOM Model will test whether the coordination of clinical care and the integration of other services critical for health, well-being, and recovery can improve the quality of care and reduce the cost of providing care to mothers and infants.

The MOM Model will adopt evidence-based practices to support pregnant women with OUD. It will pay special attention to early identification of pregnancy, substance use, expanding the timeframe to follow women postpartum to 24 months, facilitation of transitions between care settings, and enhanced coordination of existing reproductive health, maternity, OUD, and mental health care services, including expanding postpartum care to include continuation of Medication Assisted Treatment.
