Policy Initiatives

At the core of the work NACPM does on behalf of midwives and families lie our policy initiatives. Our efforts are currently focused on achieving federal recognition for Certified Professional Midwives and mandating Medicaid reimbursement for CPM services through our Midwives and Mothers in Action (MAMA) Campaign.

In addition, we are proposing a value-based payment and a service delivery model – A Bundled Payment Proposal to Improve Maternity Care Outcomes and Lower Costs – to improve the quality and lower the cost of maternity care by providing women and their families with access to the full range of type of care provider and birth setting options
