Project: MANA Health Policy and Advocacy Division Collaboration with Integrative Health Policy Consortium (IHPC) – Midwifery Care Reimbursement Identification Project

Applicant Organization: Midwives Alliance of North America, Health Policy and Advocacy Division

Midwives across the United States struggle with being reimbursed for their services. States have different models for Medicaid reimbursement, and insurers set their own, sometimes unfair, rules. MANA is interested in the experiences of her members and seeks to identify their problems and concerns, and develop reimbursement strategies on a more global scale, in conjunction with other complementary providers represented by the Integrative Health Policy Consortium.
