Medicaid Obstetrical and Maternal Services (MOMS) Program
Description of MOMS Program
The MOMS program provides pregnancy services (medical and health supportive) in areas of the state where Prenatal Care health centers are not located. Medical services are provided in private physicians' offices. Health supportive services (HSS) are provided by DOH approved providers. HSS includes the following: nutrition and psychosocial services, health education, HIV counseling and testing, and assistance with the Medicaid and WIC applications. All women enrolled in MOMS receive complete pregnancy care and can enter either by going through a MOMS physician or HSSP.
Women are eligible for services up to 200% of the federal poverty level. MOMS offers routine pregnancy check ups, hospital care during pregnancy and delivery, full health care for the woman until at least two months after delivery and full health care coverage for the baby up to one year of age.
