Medicaid Covered Births

Medicaid covered births, shown as a percentage of all births, is obtained from MCH Update, an annual publication published by the National Governors Association's (NGA). Data is collected by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, Health Policy Studies Division. Some states are unable to report the number of births paid for by Medicaid because some beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care programs that are unable to separate Medicaid and commercial enrollees. More background on NGA, as well as past issues of the MCH Update, can be found on the NGA Web site.
