Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) added a contraception initiative to the Quality of Care section on Medicaid.gov.
CMS has established a Maternal and Infant Health Initiative (the Initiative) for the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) programs. Under the Initiative, CMCS will promote the use of effective methods of contraception in order to improve pregnancy timing and spacing and in turn, the health outcomes for both women and children.
