Maternal Health – Insure Kids Now

In 2020, the maternal mortality rate in the U.S. was 24 deaths per 100,000 live births — more than three times the rate in most other high-income countries. Over 80% of pregnancy-related deaths were determined to be preventable. Together, Medicaid and CHIP cover about 42% of births in the US and play a critical role in ensuring access to care for pregnant and postpartum individuals, improving the quality of maternal health care, and addressing disparities in health outcomes and pregnant and postpartum care.

Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) offer free or low-cost health coverage for pregnant individuals and offer a range of services including prenatal visits, postpartum care and other comprehensive services.
